Geography is an investigation of the world which provides an accurate description and interpretation of the varied character of the earth and its people. It is a key discipline through which students develop the ability to recognise and understand environmental change and the interactions which take place in our world.
The study of Geography allows students to perceive the world in a variety of ways and helps them make sense of a complex and changing world.
A syllabus is a document that gives teachers an outline of what students are to be taught in a specific learning area.
The syllabus and other supporting material for Geography 7-10 is available from the Board of Studies.
