The future of the world within our hands

Geography helps students to make sense of their surroundings and to understand the variety of physical and human conditions found on the earth's surface. Geography prepares students with the knowledge, skills and understanding to make sense of their world and to face the challenges that will shape our societies and environments at the local, national and global scales. We strive to ensure geography stimulates an interest and a sense of wonder about places. Personal experiences are used to investigate places from the personal to the global.
