At Bates Drive School, History involves students exploring their personal and family history as well as how this compares to others' personal and family history.

Geography involves students identifying and exploring environments such as their home, school and community. High school classes also study a range of international environments and landscapes. Technology and sensory experiences support student learning in this subject as well as community learning excursions to places of significance within the community.
