Why Study History?
History invites students to ask questions of both themselves and influential leaders of the time through active engagemenet in the past and the imagining and speculating of possible future outcomes of present decisions. 

History presents students with the dilemmas, choices, and beliefs of people in the past.

History connects students with the wider world as they develop their own identities and sense of place. Students are able to engage with history at personal, local, and international levels. They investigate the histories of their communities, New Zealand, and the wider world. Through these investigations students are able to develop an informed understanding of the origins of our diverse society in Aotearoa New Zealand. 

An awareness of history inspires students to become confident, questioning, and empathetic individuals.

History helps equip students with the skills they need for the future.  At the end of their study students will be able to:

  • Synthesise varied and complex materials.
  • Complete a high level research assignment.
  • Actively question and consolidate their learning and research question data.
  • Articulate their findings through an oral presentation.
  • Be familiar with common historical research methodology.
  • Evaluate evidence.
  • Analyse different viewpoints and interpretations of the past.
  • Substantiate their argument and judgement.
