One of the most important subjects under threat – Geography
It was with a heavy heart this week that I read research which indicated fewer students are choosing to study Geography. Why do I feel sad about this?
In the current climate of global warming and reading daily about how we can all contribute to being environmentally friendly. I think we all want to do our bit to help the environment.

Geography is so important, now more than ever. Geography provokes questions and answers regarding the differing human and natural world. Students get to study the fascinating maps and this leads onto to observing weather fronts as well as the huge variety of clouds we have and the varying weather they bring with them.
Geography is one of the few subjects which enable students to study the area which they live in. This could be the scenic sights of Scotland, through to the wetlands of Wales, through to the lush Limestone of Lakeland. Each of these areas has something to teach us, and Geography is the subject which just keeps on giving us more and more knowledge about our planet, world cultures and environments.
