HISTORY (AUSTRALIAN CURRICULUM)
The Australian Curriculum History course, ‘The Revolution that Shaped the Modern World (1750-1918)’ is compulsory for all students. In addition, an elective subject “Power in the 20th and 21st Centuries” is also offered.
Both courses aim to impart knowledge and understanding, in addition to the development of skills used in the process of historical inquiry. Significant emphasis is placed upon independent study skills through the promotion of varied research methodologies.
History aims both to interest and stimulate students, whilst developing the individual skills and responsibility required for the continuation of History in the senior years.
