The focus in Kindergarten to Year 2 is on awareness of family history and community heritage. Students learn about their own social context of family, friends and school, and the significance of the past. They engage with the remains of the past; develop a concept of time as present, past and future and through role play use their imagination to speculate about the lives of others in the past.

In the Senior school the focus is on local and national history and use of a range of sources. Students develop their understanding of the world and their relationship to others past and present. Students begin to better understand and appreciate different points of view and to develop an awareness of justice and fair play.
