History and Geography are highly valued at Holy Spirit and integral for today’s learning
We have made a significant commitment to the ongoing implementation of information communication and technologies. We encourage 'hands on' experiences, so that our students might explore and develop as independent and effective users of scientific and technological information relevant to their lives. Learning technologies are integrated throughout the curriculum, with students and teachers increasingly using a range of technologies and multimedia to enrich learning and teaching.
Human Society and Its Environment encompasses the areas of History and Geography. The study of History is designed to stimulate students’ interest in and enjoyment of exploring the past, to develop a critical understanding of the past and its impact on the present, to develop the critical skills of historical inquiry and to enable students to participate as active, informed and responsible citizens.
The study of Geography is designed to stimulate students’ interest in and engagement with the world. Through geographical inquiry they develop an understanding of the interactions between people, places and environments across a range of scales in order to become informed, responsible and active citizens.
