GEOGRAPHY PROVIDES A BROAD RANGE OF TOPICS TO ENHANCE PUPILS GEOGRAPHICAL SKILLS AND STRENGTHEN THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORLD AROUND THEM.
The department strives to facilitate learners to become global citizens who can make decisions and solve problems by using e- learning and technology in the classroom.
In Pegasus Early Years and the Lower School, Geography is delivered through a range of humanities based topics, which are designed to engage children and help them to develop a love of the subject. In Year 5, we introduce the key elements of Geography, with a focus on the Geography of Kenya and the development of geographical skills. The Geography Curriculum in Years 6 to 8 follows the British education system culminating in the Common Entrance Examination.
Kenya is an outstanding country to study Geography in and the department prides itself on offering a wide range of residential field trips to reinforce learning within the classroom. Through Years 5 to 8, pupils will have the opportunity to visit The Rift Valley escarpment, Lake Naivasha, Geothermal Power Plants, National Parks and Reserves (including Hells Gate and The Masai Mara), carry out rivers studies and environmental projects and climb Mt. Longonot and Mt. Kenya. As well as having an out of the classroom learning experience, the trips aim to build on the children's independence and social skills. This is a wonderful opportunity for our pupils and always, a highlight of our pupils time at The Banda.
