History - Introduction

History is one of the humanities subjects. History fires students' curiosity and imagination, moving and inspiring them with the dilemmas, choices and beliefs of people in the past. It helps students develop their own identities through an understanding of history at personal, local, national and international levels. It helps them to ask and answer questions of the present by engaging with the past.

Students develop their knowledge and understanding of the causes, consequences and significance of historical events and relate them to present circumstances. They learn to distinguish fact from opinion and explore different interpretations of events using the historian's skills of evaluating evidence.
