Students are expected to develop knowledge and understanding of:
- how natural environments influence human activities, and how human activities alter natural environments;
- the changing development of geographical phenomena and issues in terms of space and time;
- the characteristics and functioning of major natural environments, through analysing the processes and interactions within and between them;
- the characteristics and development of major human activities, in order to achieve a sense of “region”;
- the issues arising from people-environment interactions and the human responses to such issues, as well as the implications of these human responses for resource management.
As an elective PSHE subject in the senior secondary curriculum, Geography aims to provide students with an understanding of the Earth and the modern world. Through examining the inter-relationships among people, places and the environment, Geography helps students to acquire an in-depth understanding of the changing contemporary world in terms of space and environment.
