Geography

 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

The Geography Department believes that Geography is an essential ingredient in the development of our students as global citizens. In an age where our world is becoming a global village, understanding and appreciation of this world is now more important than ever before. We want our students to be prepared for the world within which they will work and to be provided with information that will allow them to make informed decisions as global citizens.

WHAT WE EXPECT FROM OUR STUDENTS

Students are expected to be punctual, well organised and to bring their books and the appropriate equipment to each lesson. Students are expected to achieve their full potential. A positive learning environment is maintained in the classroom and students are expected to follow rules to ensure this environment is not compromised. At the same time we encourage students to use their initiative and plenty of opportunities are provided to allow pupils to express their individuality both in the classroom and in their work. Respect and consideration are key values enforced in the learning of environment of a Geography classroom, both towards the teacher and their peers.
