Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Townsend

Essentially Geography is the study of people and their impact on an environment. Level 3 Geography studies a cultural concept (tourism in Queenstown) as well as continuing to add and build on geographic skills and concepts. The three internals are based on one local research topic where students collect data and analyse it, study a global issue around the diamond trade and a contemporary geographic issue relating to Human Trafficking.
