In Geography we study about places, people and what shapes the environment around us. Students learn how the environment influences people, and how we change the world around us. Students works together to develop their ability to draw and understand maps ,graphs and diagrams, as well as studying photographs and collecting information outside the classroom through fieldwork where possible.
Geography is a distinctive subject and crosses the boundaries of the natural sciences on the one hand and the social sciences on the other. Geography studies how people relate and interact with the spaces, places, landscape and environments in which they live. It trains the students of Coláiste Dhúlaigh Post Primary to solve economic and political problems confronting Ireland today and into the future. Geography is rich in material that relates to international understanding, multi-cultural concerns and environmental education.
