In Level 2 Classical Studies at Westlake Girls High School the focus is on the civilisation of ancient Greece; everyday life; the social and political systems, the art and literature. We examine the belief systems, philosophies and values of the time. Topics include: Athenian society, Greek drama and mythology, the architecture and sculpture of ancient Athens.

NZQA Rationale – Classical Studies is the study of the people, places and events of the classical world and how they influence the modern world. Classical Studies is an interdisciplinary subject: students engage with Literature, Languages, Art, History, Science, Technology, Religion and Philosophy. Students explore community, cultural identity, values and perspectives and think critically about human behaviour and relationships to appreciate the civilisations of ancient Greece and Rome, understand the past and the present and to imagine possible futures.
