Inquiry at Annunciation School looks at the strands of History, Geography,Science,Humanities,Sustainability and Economics and how these effect the way people organise themselves throughout the global community.

In particular it will focus on Australia , its’ people past and present and its’ position within the Asian Pacific region. It will also develop an understanding of the importance of our environment to human survival and a study of major world issues that will affect the way we live.

The knowledge, skills and values gained by the children will lead them to become responsible, decision-making citizens in our ever-changing world.



At Annunciation the Inquiry model focuses on content based around history,geography,science, humanities,economics and sustainability (as seen in the Victorian curriculum)
