HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES

Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) covers a broad range of topics to help develop students’ understanding of the world around them and the society in which they live. There is a strong emphasis on both skills and content. The skills that students learn from the study of HASS include literacy, numeracy, research skills, critical thinking and inquiry.

 

Each year level from Year 7 to 10 covers History and Geography. There are also units on Government, Law and Economics.

 

In Years 11 and 12, students can specialise in areas of HASS including Career and Enterprise, Geography and Modern History.
