Early Stage 1 to Stage 3

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 History K-10 Syllabus is a separate document from the Geography K-10 Syllabus.

The NSW Education Standards Authority recommends that 6-10% of a typical school week is spent teaching HSIE.
