Social Studies

« Back to Subjects

In Social Studies, students learn about people, places, cultures, histories and the economic world within and beyond New Zealand. Social Studies helps students understand people by exploring different points of view and beliefs. Students are given opportunities to develop communication, critical thinking and decision-making skills. These attributes help students become responsible and informed individuals with the ability to analyse the world that surrounds them. The course for each student is developed in consultation with the teacher to meet their particular needs and interests.
