Level 1 and 2 Classical Studies


At level one a successful completion of Middle School English and Social Studies is required. At level two a minimum of ten level one literacy credits.

Course description:

This is a blended course for both level one and two students, consisting of level one and two internal and external achievement standards.The dawn of our culture began with the ancient Greeks and Romans. We owe our modern identity to the courage and the creativity of the people who lived in these civilisations. Classics is not just about learning history. It is more about finding a personal connection with the people in our past. Be prepared to enter imaginatively into a time where gods and heroes roamed the earth; a world where people fought and died on the whims of Tyrants. A place where political intrigue, scandal, violence and drama brought both rise and downfall to those willing to participate in the leadership and development of the most advanced societies the world had ever seen.
