Integrated Studies

All levels of the school enjoy learning about their world through our Integrated Studies topics. We cover a wide variety of topics that include Australian History and Geography, our neighbouring countries, Koorie culture, our bodies, forces, natural disasters, space, animals, mapping, etc. etc. etc.

The main areas that are studied cover Geography, History, Health and Science. Learning is done through hands on experiences including experiments, excursions and explorations. The Integrated Studies topics are well integrated into the other learning domains of English, Mathematics, ICT, The Arts and Physical Education. Units are planned to include between three and six weeks’ work and deep levels of engagement are encountered as the students explore and learn from the teacher, the internet, resources and each other. Students’ work is displayed, demonstrating the learning and understandings that have occurred.
