Integrated Studies

“The world is a great book, of which those who never stir from home read only a page.” St. Augustine


Students identify and describe characteristics of places and environments. They learn to see the connections between themselves and the world around them and understand the impact of their choices on their community.  This is done through the examination of their relationship with God, each other and a variety of cultures. Students investigate the history of European exploration and colonisation in Australia up to the early 1800s. They also investigate life cycles and describe relationships that assist in the survival of living things. They conduct experiments and complete simple reports to communicate their methods and findings. Students also investigate and experiment with the different properties of materials, alongside using contact and non-contact forces to describe interactions between objects.
