Integrated Studies

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


Students study the key learning areas of History, Geography and Science. They pose questions, gather evidence, conduct experiments, draw conclusions and effectively communicate their ideas. Students explore the factors which led to Australia's Federation and further investigate the Westminster System, democracy and citizenship. They research the contributions of individuals and groups to Australia’s history and culture. Students examine the experiences of a migrant group and the reasons they migrated. They explain how natural events can affect earth’s surface. Students compare different ways to generate electricity and evaluate their suitability for particular purposes. They participate in discussions that allow them to reflect on and make connections between their learning and how we are called to be stewards of God’s creation and the people He loves.
