History & Geography in Carns N.S.

As part of Social, Environmental and Scientific Education (SESE) in Carns NS, which consists of the three subjects of Science, Geography and History, we endeavour to give children the opportunity to explore, investigate and develop an understanding of our local and wider environment at the school.
