The_Port_of_Gibraltar_(Aerial_View_from_the_North_West)‘GIBRALTAR Studies’ will be taught at all first and middle schools from next September.

The subject will include the development of Gibraltarian people, natural history, geology and the marine environment.

The importance to Gibraltar of trade and tourism will also be part of the syllabus, as will be culture, food and not only the Rock’s history, but its prehistory going back to the Neanderthals.

Education Minister Gilbert Licudi said: “There is so much to learn about Gibraltar, and we want it to be taught in a structured manner.”

A curriculum working group is now being established to develop the finer details of the new course.
