NCEA Level 3 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: 

  • Seas the Day (a study of coastal processes in the BOP) 
  • Here, There and Everywhere (an in-depth study of tourism development in the Gold Coast and Rotorua).
  • Geographic Issues - Human Trafficking  

Students will have the opportunity to carry out field work during field trips to Mount Maunganui and Rotorua as part of their studies. 

Geography gives students the skills and knowledge to be better prepared for life after school. Geography provides a strong literacy and numeracy focus that provides a solid foundation for success in your studies after school. This is an approved subject for University Entrance and provides UE literacy credits.
