Why History?
History is the study of past events and societies. As well as giving you useful general knowledge about the past, History helps you to understand the world we live in now and form opinions about issues you read about in newspapers or see on television.
Any fool can make history, but it takes a genius to write it.
Oscar Wilde
A country without a memory is a country of madmen.
George Santayana
History teaches everything, even the future.
Alphonse de Lamartine
To create Confident Individuals, Successful Learners, Responsible Citizens and Effective Contributors through the study of people and events in the past.


William Wallace
