Humanities is a fascinating, challenging and enjoyable subject. It helps us to understand the changes in societies and countries over time, investigate the development of the world’s resources, and predict future trends for our lifestyles and the use of our natural environment. The knowledge, skills and values associated with Humanities encourage students to constantly question and evaluate the world around them and promote stewardship of the environment as global citizens.
The three areas that will be studied are:
Water in the world - This unit examines the many uses of water, the ways it is perceived and valued, its different forms as a resource, the ways it connects places as it moves through the environment, its varying availability in time and across space, and its scarcity
Liveability - This unit examines factors that influence live-ability and how it is perceived, the idea that places provide us with the services and facilities needed to support and enhance our lives, and that spaces are planned and managed by people.
Students will examine past societies and their traditional ways of life. Particular focus will be on the continuity and changes, which occurred within early Australian pre-history and ancient Egypt and China.
Money & Technology
Students will demonstrate how money provides a way of exchanging goods and services and identify the structures in our society, which involve the use of money. In addition, students will examine the ways that technology has changed and how lifestyle reflects the use of available technologies.
