EDUCATION for SUSTAINABILITY 21S (Semester) - GES21S
TEACHER IN CHARGE: Mr Stoddart
Any student with reasonable Level 1 grades may study SUS at this level. Year 11 Geography is an advantage.
Education for sustainability (SUS) is about learning to think and act in ways that safeguard the well-being of people and the planet. In SUS, students explore the relationship between people and the environment. They learn about the environmental, social, cultural and economic aspects of sustainability. They learn to show leadership by example and to contribute to collective decisions that lead to actions for a sustainable future. People can have very different views on sustainability. In SUS, students explore and evaluate different perspectives, re-think long standing ideas and consider alternative practices and directions. Sustainability is an approved subject at L3.
All assessments are Achievement Standards with the opportunity to gain 9 Internal and 3 External credits.
Various field trips $50.00
CPIT and the University of Canterbury and Lincoln (to name a few tertiary providers) have a range of courses with sustainable themes.
