Geography

Geography inspires curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with students for the rest of their lives. Students learn about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments, gaining a deep understanding of the Earth’s key physical and human processes. As students progress, their growing knowledge about the world will deepen their understanding of the interaction between physical and human processes, and of the formation and use of landscapes and environments.
