Ashfield Girls' High School
Challenging girls today, creating women of value for the future
Geography is now part of the Environment and Society section of the Northern Ireland Curriculum. Geography is an extremely active subject at AGHS as through Geography we aim to promote our students’ thinking skills and personal capabilities by examining strands of human, physical and environmental geography.
Geography plays a key part in the curriculum as it enables our students to develop a sense of place and belonging locally, regionally and globally. The students are able to demonstrate an awareness of relationships to places, people and environments.
Our students, through Geography, are taught to play a role in helping to promote a fairer world. Geography teaches the girls many skills such as research, debate, role play, investigation and not to mention field work when Geography comes to life outside the classroom.
Geography lessons are very active in Ashfield, lessons consist of drama, role play, games, music and not to mention the use of ICT through the use of power point, excel, and active inspire which enables our students to have a voice in our classrooms.
Geography plays a huge part in today’s media; it’s a subject that equips students with skills that will be useful in their future careers.
