Humanities & Social Sciences

The Humanities & Social Sciences learning area develops students’ understanding of how individuals and groups live together, interact with their environment, manage resources and create institutions and systems.  Students further understand that over time, these relationships and interactions may change to varying degrees.  Students develop a respect for cultural heritage and a commitment to social justice, the democratic process and ecological sustainability.

Students develop these understandings through processes of social inquiry, environmental appraisal, ethical analysis and the skills to constructively critique various perspectives from past and present contexts.

Students are encouraged to apply their understandings and skills in their own lives, in developing environmental consciousness, social competence and civic responsibility. In doing so, they are engaged in actively exploring, making sense of and contributing to improving the world around them.
