Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms S. McKeagg

Classical Studies is the study of the civilisations of Classical Greece and Rome. We study them because of the historical importance of classical civilisation in the cultural tradition of Western Europe, which is an important part of contemporary New Zealand culture. In Classical Greece and Rome are the origins of much of our art, science, literature, law, philosophy, politics and religion. Included in this subject are topics from ancient history, literature and art. This subject can be endorsed with Achieved, Merit or Excellence.
