Geography

Students develop an understanding of the spatial interrelationships between people, places, and environments. They appreciate the complexity of our world, the diversity of its environments, and the challenges and associated opportunities facing Australia and the world.

Geography develops an appreciation of the importance of place in explanations of economic, social, and environmental phenomena and processes. Geography provides a systematic, integrative way of exploring, analysing, and applying the concepts of place, space, environment, interconnection, sustainability, scale, and change. Students identify patterns and trends, and explore and analyse geographical relationships and interdependencies. They use this knowledge to promote a more sustainable way of life and an awareness of social and spatial inequalities.
