Level 3 Geography
Teacher in Charge: Ms A. Lanigan
To understand Interacting Natural Processes we will investigate how tectonic, fluvial, marine and aeolian processes interact to create the Kapiti coast environment.
Cultural Processes are investigated through the study of tourism development and how it shapes the geographic environments of the Rotorua region.
We will also explore other Geographic topics of interest to support our NCEA Internal Assessment programme.
