Humanities: Individuals & Societies
Humanities is a compulsory full year subject at Year 9.
In this subject students learn to think clearly about current issues confronting them and their world. Students undertake three humanities disciplines of History, Geography and Civics and Citizenship. Students develop inquiry skills that lead towards conceptual understandings of the relationships between individuals, societies and the environment in which they live. They learn to act as responsible citizens of local and global communities.
