Teacher in Charge: Ms M. Wensley
The Social Studies programme is planned so that students gain knowledge and understanding about events, places and people of significance to New Zealand and beyond, in the past and the present. Social Studies helps students to understand their world and provides the skills that will enable them to participate in a changing society as informed and confident citizens.
The course covers four of the following topics which provide tasters of the subjects in the senior Social Science courses:
• The legacy of the Ancient World (linked to Classical Studies).
• Horrible Histories (linked to History).
• Global issues and Human Rights (linked to Senior Social Studies).
• Sustainability (linked to Geography).
Courses will only run based on minimum entries
