The Humanities include History, Geography, Civics and Citizenship and Economics.
Humanities is a core subject in Year 7 and 8. Students have one semester of History and one semester of Geography to ensure they learn the key skills associated with each discipline. The study of Civics and Citizenship and Economics is woven through both History and Geography.
In Year 9 and 10 there is a strong focus on Australia and its place in the world in the Humanities core course.
