07 Humanities


Year 7 Humanities Curriculum is based on 4 strands from the Australian Curriculum:


The Year 7 curriculum provides a study of history from the time of the earliest human communities to the end of the ancient period, approximately 60 000 BC (BCE) - c.650 AD (CE).  The study of the ancient world includes the discoveries and the mysteries of this period of history, in a range of societies in places including Australia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, India and China.


‘Landforms and landscapes’ focuses on investigating geomorphology through a study of landscapes and their landforms. ‘Changing nations’ investigates the changing human geography of countries, as revealed by shifts in population distribution.

Civics and Citizenship

The year 7 curriculum provides a study of the responsibilities and freedoms of citizens and how Australians can actively participate in their democracy. Students consider how laws are made and the types of laws used in Australia. Students also examine what it means to be Australian by identifying the reasons for and influences that shape national identity.

Economics and Business

The year 7 curriculum gives students the opportunity to further develop their understanding of economics and business concepts by exploring the ways markets  work within Australia.



Students will be assessed against the Australian Curriculum year 7 history, geography, civics and citizenship and business and enterprise achievement standards.
