Humanities and Social Sciences

In Society and Environment, children and students increase their understanding, knowledge and skills and develop attitudes and values to help them participate as active and informed citizens in their local and global society. Learning takes place through a range of disciplines and studies including history, geography, Aboriginal studies, civics and citizenship, studies in religion and environmental education.


Through these studies, learners will develop their knowledge and understanding of:

  • the society they live in
  • other societies in the world
  • the relationships between people and their society
  • the relationship between society and the environment.
