What is Geography about?

L1 Geography explained

The students who take this course should be curious about the world around them. Students will learn about local issues, perspectives as well as global topics. Semester A will be more nature focused  as we look into the South Kaipara Deer cull  and look at how environmental factors influence the production of Cacao beans as a global topic.


Geography is the study of the environment as the home of people. It seeks to interpret the world and how it changes over time – past, present, and future.

It explores the relationships and connections between people and both natural and cultural environments.

Geography investigates the ways in which features are arranged on the earth’s surface. It describes and explains the patterns and processes that create them.

Students learn to think spatially and use maps, visual images and new technologies, including geographical information systems (GIS), to obtain, present and analyse information.

Achievement Objectives

  • Understand that natural and cultural environments have particular characteristics and how environments are shaped by processes that create spatial patterns. 
  • Understand how people interact with natural and cultural environments and that this interaction has consequences.
