Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr S. Gibson

Geography guides students towards a critical appreciation of the interaction between people and the environment. Studying Geography provides a window into the complex mosaic of places that make up our world.

At Level 1 you will study exam topics on extreme natural events (earthquakes) in New Zealand or an overseas setting, as well as interpreting geographic skills. The internal assessments look at the global patterns of terrorism, the sustainable use of the Ganges River and the changing land use in Martinborough, from farming to vineyeards and olive groves. 

There is a one day field trip to gather research an internal assessment. 

Level 1 Geography is an endorsed course offering 18 credits, 8 externally and 10 internally assessed. You can gain 8 Numeracy credits and 14 Literacy credits from this subject. 


Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

There is a $20.00 donation to attend the Field Trip to Martinborough to gather data for the research standard.

Recommended Prior Learning

Geography is an open entry course. However, it has a heavy reading and writing component. Ideally students would have displayed strong critical and analytical skills in the junior school which are essential in this subject.
