History

Thursday 24 April, 2014

The study of History at Pymble gives students a sense of perspective while showing how the past has shaped the modern world. In the information age, History gives students the crucial grounding needed to critically assess and evaluate sources of information. Within students, the study of History builds a sense of social justice and the responsibilities of global citizenship.

At Pymble, History follows the Australian Curriculum approach of ‘Big History’. Students gain an understanding of the broad sweep of world history, with time allocated for the in-depth study of certain periods. The subject involves the study of World, Australian and Asian History – a strong foundation on which further History subjects rest.
