We are committed to delivering high quality, challenging, interesting and appropriate learning experiences to all our students, inside and outside of the classroom. History is a popular subject at St. Joseph’s and we work hard to provide our students with the tools to be successful not only in History but in other areas by providing skills that will be useful in the future. We believe History is a vital part of education. People have a natural inquisitiveness about their past and we want to develop that with fun and interesting lessons that appeal to students of all backgrounds.
The curriculum we offer allows students to understand and value the cultures and heritages of other people, giving them particular skills that are not developed elsewhere – like chronology, or interpretations of the past through the presentation of sources and historical artifacts. We believe that by studying political, economic, social and cultural developments in line with the Catholic church, that it prepares our students to be citizens of the modern world enriched in the faith and belief of Christianity.
