The Tree of Knowledge: Arts and Sciences
Some people imagine that all knowledge is connected as though it formed and branched on a tree. There are two main branches to begin with. One branch deals with subjects where experiments can be repeated with the same results and mathematical ideas proven by logic. The other main branch deals with subjects that are unique and creative, like art, music and poetry. Some subjects use a combination of logic, imagination and creativity.
The Key Learning Areas (or KLAs) of high school are English, Science, Mathematics, HSIE (which includes Geography, History, and other subjects), Languages, Creative Arts (which includes Visual Arts and Music), PDHPE and Technology (which includes Food Technology, Textiles and other subjects). All of your teachers will teach subjects in these KLAs. Sometimes they teach a number of related subjects. For instance a Maths teacher might teach Science and an English teacher could teach History). All of these subjects need a degree of Information Literacy in order to achieve the outcomes the syllabus states are necessary to be skilled and proficient in the subject.
