Humanities Department - What will you experience today?

Welcome to the Humanities Department where every student is encouraged to learn about the world around them through geography, history and religious studies.

Our vision is to inspire students to be curious about the past, evaluate the present and consider their impact on the future.

Our aim for religious studies is to promote intrigue that ignites the students' interests to explore beliefs, values and customs.

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.
