Level 2 History
Teacher in Charge: Mr E. Campbell
“Study the past if you would define the future,” noted the Chinese philosopher Confucius. This course explores some significant events that shaped the twentieth century. A specific study of a key Cold War conflict, the Vietnam War, will be examined. Also studied will be Apartheid in South Africa, which established a system of control to govern a state along racial lines. The impact of this in South Africa will be looked at, as well as its relationship to the 1981 Springbok rugby tour of New Zealand, a key event in our nation's history. NOTE: Taking the Level 2 History --> Level 3 History or Level 3 Classical Studies pathway will ensure you fulfil the Literacy requirements for University Entrance.
