Engaging Learning Environments

The faculty strongly encourages students to participate in extra-curricular activities which enable them to utilise skills learnt in the classroom, compete against students on a national level and gain recognition for their achievements. Students participate in nationally recognised competitions such as the National Geographic Competition and the Economics Competition; and also enter teams in the ASX Share market Competition and Money Stuff Challenge.

Students also participate in Sustainable Environmental Leadership programs both within and outside the school context. These include; Taronga Zoo Sustainable School forums, National Tree planting day and school-based projects which focus on making the school more environmentally sustainable.

In the classroom – stimulating cognitive development

In disciplines offered by the Social Sciences faculty students work in a resource-rich environment. Most lessons are taught with the aid of ICT technology.  With the aid of Chrome Books our classrooms have access to 30 laptop computers which are portable devices that can be positioned flexibly and adapted to any learning space. These provide access to the internet, the School's electronic resources and on-line resources via the Library website. Students are engaged in research-based activities which support their learning and empower them in their learning to communicate information via technologies such as creating documentaries and presentations.

Each room has a digital projector, linked to a computer and a sound system, to display learning stimuli, documentaries, diagrams, and multi-media presentations. This helps create a vibrant and engaging venue for learning and teaching.

The External Classroom - Fieldwork

Learning about our world means getting out and seeing it in action! At Birrong fieldwork and simulations make the subjects come alive. An inquiry approach is used in the Social Sciences subjects where students generate focus questions, collect primary data and process, analyse and present it in oral and written forms. Through an inquiry approach students also explain patterns, evaluate consequences and contribute to the management of people, places and environments in an increasingly complex world.

Fieldwork is a crucial part of Geography at Birrong. Homebush Bay, Darling Harbour, Sydney Wild Life Park, Sydney Aquarium and Penrith Science and Waste Management Plant are some of the venues for our fieldwork. All Year 9 Geography students undertake fieldwork examining the issue of urban growth and decline in Pyrmont and all Year 10 students investigate the issue of coastal management in Cronulla.

"Seeing is believing" as we equip our students with a capacity to be active geographers

Stage 4 and 5 Geography

"Geography inspires curiosity and wonder about the diversity of the world's places, peoples, cultures and environments."

The Australian Curriculum

"Geography is a subject which holds the key to our future. It is a living, breathing subject, constantly adapting itself to change. It is dynamic and relevant. For me geography is a great adventure with a purpose."

Michael Palin, English Comedian, Actor, Writer, Television Presenter and President of The Royal Geographical Society


In Stages 4 and 5 Geography is a mandatory component of the curriculum. Students are required by the Board of Studies to study Geography in years 7 to 10.

Currently, in Stage 4 students explore and learn about human and physical elements in Global Geography. In Stage 5 students focus on Australian Geography. In both Stages 4 and 5 students are required to complete mandatory fieldwork to support and complement content taught within the classroom. As a result, the Social Science faculty has organised a number of excursions and incursions which provide students the opportunity to achieve positive educational outcomes.

The NSW Australian Curriculum in Geography

In 2017 the faculty will begin delivering the new NSW Australian Curriculum in Geography, to Years 7 and 9, and will begin teaching the new curriculum to Years 8 and 10 in 2018.

The new Australian Curriculum defines Geography as the "study of places and the relationships between people and their environments" to build a complete understanding of the world. Students learn to question why the world is the way it is, investigate and understand the places that make up our world, reflect on their relationships with and responsibilities for the world, how places are connected and how  and why they are changing, propose  actions designed to shape a socially just and sustainable future.

The Social Sciences Faculty is preparing for the implementation of the new curriculum and has begun working in  partnership with professional learning networks and our colleagues in other schools to develop engaging and innovative teaching and learning programs which meet the needs of 21st  Century learners.

Students will learn about the following topics under the NSW Australian Curriculum in Geography on its implementation in 2017 and 2018 below:

Year 7 (Implemented 2017)

Year 8 (Implemented 2018)

Year 9 (Implemented 2017)

Year 10 (Implemented 2018)

  • Landforms and Landscapes
  • Place  and Liveability
  • Interconnections
  • Water in the World
  • Sustainable Biomes
  • Changing Places
  • Environmental Change and Management
  • Human Wellbeing

Geography Elective (Stage 4 & 5)

At Birrong Girls High school, our girls are provided with opportunities' to extend their knowledge beyond the core curriculum. Students from Years 7 to 10 are engaged and undertake elective Geography as an extension to the core curriculum to promote an environment for students to grow. The elective curriculum provides Gifted students the opportunity to  grow and  develop their investigative skills in order to solve problems and enhances their capacity to make connections and manipulate abstract ideas.

 

EAL/D learners are also supported: students from EAL/D backgrounds have diverse talents and capabilities and a range of prior learning experiences in their first language and in English. Students are supported via informed teaching strategies: EAL/D learners develop through elective Geography the language skills necessary to be informed and engaged learners.

Topics that may be studied in elective Geography include:

Elective Geography 7-10

Physical Geography                                        Australia's Neighbours

Commerce (Stage 5)

Commerce is an elective which is studied in Years 9 and or 10. The students cover a wide range of subject matter. The classes engage in a wide variety of learning experiences that students use to discover their own preferred learning style. Our teachers create a positive and stimulating environment, providing learning and teaching activities ranging from webquests and presentations to group and on-line activities, all of which our students find both challenging and rewarding.

The highlight of the Year 10 course is "Running Your Own Business: Mother's Day Stall". The students embrace this venture with great enthusiasm and they learn real skills and develop a clearer understanding of the world of business whilst enjoying the competitive nature of the activity.

...'''

Year 10 Commerce Students - Running a Business -Mother's Day Stall

Commerce provides students with the opportunity to examine their rights and responsibilities as young adults. The topics present many current issues which encourage students to make connections with the real world and make learning more significant. Commerce is structured in a manner which allows the study of issues as they arise in the real world. Whether it is an upcoming election, a product recall or an important legal issue our classes study the event to deepen their understanding of the world in which they live and this truly makes the course relevant and enjoyable.

In these subjects, students are encouraged and empowered to develop the skills required to recognise and understand how key institutions integral to our society operate. By developing and maintaining direct contact with government and private businesses, students are equipped with the knowledge to assess and compare actual practices with contemporary theory, preparing them to become tomorrow's decision makers.

Business Studies (Years 11 and 12)

Business Studies is the study of all things to do with business both from inside the business operations and functions to how outside factors influence business and to how important business is to our society.

In the Preliminary course, students study the nature of business, employment relations, marketing, operations and financial management. Finally, students learn about the choices and decisions involved in starting a business and how to go about developing a business plan.

In the HSC course students will be building on their Preliminary studies. They will be learning how the dynamic nature of the business environment influences the way businesses operate and how management cope with change. Furthermore, students are made aware of how businesses also have a social responsibility to operate in an ethical and ecologically sustainable manner. In Year 12 they progress to an in-depth study of key business functions, which when combined with a global perspective, provides students with an excellent understanding of the internal workings of a business. In Years 11 and   12 students will study the following topics:

Course Outline –Business Studies

Preliminary

HSC

Nature of Business Business Management Business Planning

Marketing Operations Human Resources Finance

 

"Virtually every company will be going out and empowering their workers with a certain set of tools, and the big difference in how much value is received from that will be how much the company steps back and really thinks through their business processes, thinking through how their business can change, how their project management, their customer feedback, their planning cycles can be quite different than they ever were before."

Bill Gates -IBM


There is a strong emphasis on case studies and skill development. In Year 11, the students undertake an in depth study of a small business which allows them to become familiar with the interdependent elements of a profitable enterprise. Case studies bring into the classroom the reality that aids understanding, therefore allowing students to apply their knowledge and skills to a myriad of business scenarios. The skills of report writing, manipulation of stimulus material and interpretation of financial reports are all developed.

The wide range of learning activities including such things as webquests, oral and visual presentations, reports, hypothetical scenarios and problem solving provide a rich and challenging program for our students. As part of the curriculum students will also participate in excursions which further provide them with solid case studies to support their learning and understanding. These include; Sydney Tower Dining, Luna Park and Ikea

The students are also given the opportunity to be part of the FOCUS Project. This project is jointly coordinated by the school and the Australian Business and Community Network. It provides leadership opportunities for young women and assists the students by helping them develop leadership and job related skills, guiding them in choosing the right career path and giving them an opportunity to be mentored by a business leader.

"Rather than justice for all, we are evolving into a system of justice for those who can afford it. We have banks that are no t only too big to fail, but too big to be held accountable."

— Joseph E. Stiglitz

Economics (Years 11 and 12)

Economic decisions have a crucial influence on the quality of life experienced by people throughout the world. The study of economics can help individuals, groups and societies make choices that assist them to improve their quality of life. Economics has a theoretical basis but relies heavily on healthy discussion in the classroom to assist students to form opinions, values and attitudes on a wide variety of issues. The perspectives of economic issues communicated by the media and politicians are considered in this context.

Australian focus

As a subject, Economics in Years 11 and 12 is distinctive because of the range of problems and issues that it investigates and the skills that it develops. A study of our course outline will show that our course is current and has an Australian focus. These two elements increase the understanding and enjoyment experienced by our students.

Discussion of economic issues dominates the media and politics. By understanding economics, students can make informed judgements about issues and policies and participate responsibly in decision-making. Students who study economics will see close relationships with their study in alternate areas such as business, accounting and finance, media, law, marketing, employment relations, tourism, history, geography or environmental studies.

The study of Economics in Years 11 and 12 allows students to develop knowledge and understanding, skills, attitudes and values using subject matter and methodology that suits their interests. The course benefits students when they pursue further     education and training, employment and active participation as citizens.

 

In Years 11 and 12 Students will study the following   topics:

Economics Course  Outline

Preliminary

HSC

Introduction to Economics Consumers and Business Markets

Labour Markets Financial Markets

Governments in the Economy

Australia's Place in the Economy

Economic Issues

Economic Policies and Management

Geography (Years 11 and 12)

Geography is an investigation of the world which provides an accurate description and interpretation of the varied character of the earth and its people. It is a key discipline through which students develop the ability to recognise and understand environmental change and the interactions which take place in our world.

The Preliminary course involves activities such as computerised weather mapping, analysing data, fieldwork, testing, measurement, Landsat imagery, soil testing and aerial photography. In Year 11 our students study the biophysical and human environments. The course involves learning about different Geography skills that help us understand the environment and how humans affect it and it affects humans. Students will undertake a Senior Geography Project which involves research and reporting findings.

The HSC course builds upon the Year 11 course and further studies man's physical and human environment. Topics include ecosystems at risk, urban place and people, economic development and resources.

The Social Science faculty provides students opportunities to enrich their knowledge and understanding via a range of excursions organised to supplement student learning in the classroom.

Students studying Geography may visit Cronulla Beach, Sydney Eye Tower, Bicentennial Park, Wullamara track, Georges River Field

Studies Centre and Pyrmont-Ultimo.

Emphasis is on practical activities that assist in understanding the topics being learnt.

Legal Studies (Years 11 and 12)

 

"There is a lot of loose talk in Australia about democracy, the rule of law and basic rights. Yet unless we educate future citizens concerning the broad outline of our laws, they may grow up feeling that law is alien to their experience. I want them to grow up insisting that the law must be just and modern and accepting the citizen's responsibility to ensure that this is so."

Michael Kirby AC CMG Former Justice of the High Court of Australia

 

 

Legal Studies offers students the opportunity to become well informed on legal issues and mechanisms for law reform, including the rights and responsibilities essential to develop into active and informed citizens in our society. Overall students will develop an understanding of complex legal concepts and evaluate the effectiveness of the law in our modern society.

 

The development of high order thinking and research skills is encouraged by a variety of learning and teaching strategies. Students are encouraged to investigate the legal system by sourcing and integrating media articles, cases, legislation and other sources of information. This allows them to effectively engage in the use of a rich variety of resources as to analyse and evaluate the effectiveness of Australian and international legal systems. Students will study the following topics in Years 11 and 12:

Course Outline –Legal  Studies

Preliminary

HSC

The Legal system The individual and the law

Law in Practice

In Year 11 Legal Studies, students will develop a deep understanding of the development of the Australian Legal System, the importance of a fair and just legal system, sources of law in Australia, the Court System and the mechanisms available for law reform. Students in year 12 will continue to explore and assess the effectiveness of the Australian Legal System in its ability to provide fair and just outcomes for individuals in society. Topics studied are; Crime, Human Rights, Family Law and Consumers.

 

This knowledge and understanding is developed through case studies about relevant and contemporary issues, including criminal law and human rights. Students are introduced to fundamental legal concepts and terminology but are also encouraged to consider broader themes such as reform, morality and the effectiveness of the law.

 

Research and communication skills (both written and oral) are developed in this course. There is also an opportunity to see the law in action when they visit the courts. Students are encouraged to develop independent learning and research skills.

 

The students gain valuable skills as they participate in a Mock Parliament coordinated by the Local MP. This gives the students the opportunity to develop a greater understanding of the Parliament process and develop advocacy skills. Students also participate in opportunities to enrich their knowledge and understanding via a range of excursions organised to supplement student learning in the classroom. Students in Legal Studies visit Parramatta local and District Court, the Downing Centre in Sydney, The Supreme court, the Police and Justice Museum, the State Library, NSW State Parliament, Mock Trials, LSA HSC Lectures and legal debates held at the Wesley Convention Centre.

 

Business Services – VET (Years 11 and 12)

Business Services is a Vocational Education Training (VET) Industry Framework. Students are expected to gain nationally recognised qualifications and important employability and industry specific skills on the successful completion of the course.

 

The Business Services framework is a nationally recognised qualification. The subject is a 240 hour course to be completed over Years 11 and 12. On successful completion of this course students will exit with dual-qualifications; that is a Business Services Certificate II or a Statement of Attainment and HSC qualification, which can be used for further higher education opportunities and pathways.

 

This is a competency-based course. This means that students work to develop the competencies, skills and knowledge described by each unit of competency.

 

To be assessed as competent a student must demonstrate to a qualified assessor that they can effectively carry out the various tasks and combinations of tasks listed to the standard required in an office environment. Students will be progressively assessed as ‘competent' or ‘not yet competent' in individual units of competency. When a student achieves a unit of competency it is signed off by the assessor. Competency-based assessment determines the vocational qualification that a student will receive.
