Welcome to History
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 history is to promote intrigue that ignites the students' interests to seek answers to the who, what, why, when, where and how.
'A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.'
