Humanities offers an array of subjects, but all concentrate on helping students identify and analyse the roles and relationships that exist in the wider world. It investigates and evaluates the consequences of human behaviour and interactions with the world across multiple contexts. 

By studying humanities, students will develop a clear understanding of

  • why the world and its people are located, act and co-exist the way they do
  • critical thinking and inquiry skills to approach new situations
  • how the world was, is and what it could be in the future

In the Junior School, History and Geography are compulsory subjects up until Year 9, Business and Economics is also offered as an elective. In the Senior School students can select from Ancient History, Modern History, Business, Accounting, Economics, Legal Studies, Geography, Social Community Studies and Certificate III in Business.
