Year 9 Social Studies is derived from the Social Sciences learning area of the NZC and aims to enable students to participate in a changing society as informed, confident and responsible citizens. Students’ learning is based around four conceptual strands: Identity, Culture and Organisation, Place and Environment, Continuity and Change, The Economic World. This provides a foundation for the separate Social Science disciplines offered in the senior secondary school.
