“I have come in order that you might have life – life in all it’s fulness. John 10:10”

“In Geography our curriculum ensures that students understand the complex nature of planet Earth by appreciating how humans interact with the physical world. We intend to empower students with transferable skills and powerful knowledge to become ‘Global Citizens’; citizens who can successfully participate in society and understand their Catholic responsibility to care for our common world.”
