Human society and its environment

"The 21st century certainly is a very exciting time to be part of the revolution that is sweeping through the education system."

Head Teacher QUEST: Mrs K Edwards

The HSIE faculty encompasses a team of passionate, dedicated teachers who always strive to offer their student's engaging and innovative learning opportunities which have connections to the real world, ensuring students can see the relevance in their learning.

We offer a broad range of subjects, including History, Geography, Commerce and QUEST into the junior school and Ancient History, Business Studies, Legal Studies, Modern History and Society and Culture in the senior school.

In addition to the subjects we offer, we also try to enhance the education of students in the following ways:

We incorporate guest speakers into our lessons to help build the community links and to highlight to students the impact that our subjects have on the people around us and the world we live in. 

In particular, we have speakers from local government, the Stolen Generations, Legal Aide, HSC Markers, the Family Court local emergency services, local businesses and the Australian Defence Force. We are always looking for new and interesting to enhance our lessons and welcome the opportunity for people to contact us to discuss ways in which they may contribute to the learning of our students as a guest speaker.

If you are interested in volunteering your time in this capacity please contact  on Kylie Edwards on  0249371877

We take great pride in organising meaningful commemoration assemblies for ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day, which include participation from students, staff community members and the Australian Defence Force so that the significance of these important events is passed on to future generations.  

We encourage active citizenship through the content included in our lessons, we well as encouraging student participation in the Student Representative Council and the Junior Aboriginal Education Consultative Group.  Involvement in such groups allows students to feel equipped and empowered to contribute to their community as they move through life.
