Level 2 Classical Studies

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss C. Watson

"... Classics I loved because of the stories." 

Steven Adams - My Life, My Fight

Classics encourages us to make links between the present and the ancient past. In this course we study Oedipus, a Greek tragedy which sees a young king murder his father and marry his mother, in an attempt to avoid his fate. We study aspects of our own cultures such as tangihanga, and the role of the matai, which we then compare to the ideas and values of Classical Greece. In this course we also look at Greek warfare, and how this led to the building of an empire. 

If you're interested in the myths, the art, and the general world of Ancient Greece, Classics is for you!
