“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin & culture is like a tree without roots”

- Marcus Garvey


Young people need a sense of history in order to understand themselves, their identity and the world around them. They need to be able to ask questions and evaluate the answers they receive – never settling for a shallow answer and pushing for a deeper explanation. History should inspire curiosity and a desire to never stop wanting to find out more.

History gives students;

  • The ability to research, filter and prioritise information.
  • A framework for questioning sources of information and evaluating which are trustworthy and reliable.
  • A solid knowledge of the culture on which the country is founded – why do we do what we do?

These prepare students for careers as;

  • Lawyers
  • Reporters
  • Teachers
  • Police Officers
  • Diplomats
  • Writers
  • Doctors
  • Politicians
  • Social workers
