NCEA Level 1 Geography

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss J. Moore

Geography


In Genesis 1 we read about how God created the earth around us and how we are to manage the resources in this world for the benefit of everyone. In Geography, we study how people interact with this environment that God has provided for us. 

Geography gives students the skills and knowledge to better understand the world around them. To help students prepare for future challenges like climate change, over-population, and extreme natural events, we study the following themes relating to people’s interaction with their environment. 

These include: 

  • Extreme Natural Events (volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis and human responses), 
  • How much is too much? (population issues facing New Zealand and the world) 
  • Gold Rush (the sustainable use of an environment - gold mining in the Coromandel). 

Students will have the opportunity to carry out field work within the BOP during two field trips related to the Year 11 course.
