In human society and its environment (HSIE), the subjects of history and geography are mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10, where students study specific historical and geographical concepts and skills.
In HSIE, students explore varied subjects in human society and its environment to learn about history, geography, people, societies and culture.
Students also have an opportunity to learn more about people and the societies and environments in which they live.
A large number of individual subjects make up the key learning area of HSIE in which students:
research, gather and analyse information
question and make judgements
write for a variety of purposes.
Arcadia Public School offers outstanding learning experiences in Human Society and its Environment.
In this important area of learning our students are immersed in the study of people, cultures, societies and built and natural environments.
We develop in our students the values and attitudes, skills, and knowledge and understanding that enhance their sense of personal, community, national and global identity.
