Planning, programming and assessing HSIE K-6
It is mandatory for all students from Kindergarten to Year 6 to study both geography and history in the key learning area of human society and its environment (HSIE).
The NSW Education Standards Authority recommends that 6-10% of a typical school week is spent teaching HSIE.
The History K-10 Syllabus (2012) is a separate document from the Geography K-10 Syllabus (2015).
