Year 10 Social Studies
Teacher in Charge: S. Rankin
The aim of Social Studies is to engender wonder, enthusiasm and an appreciation of the human, natural and economic environments we live in. While experiencing new ideas and posing controversial questions, students are encouraged to achieve their personal level of excellence. Students will run their own enterprise activity as well as investigate and explore some of the key events, people, and perspectives from the past. They will learn about their local, regional and national geography and also look at economic events that have shaped the New Zealand economy and that affect how sustainable it is.
An individual course will only run if sufficient students are accepted into the course.
All approvals for courses through this system are subject to satisfactory achievement in remaining internal standards and external examinations. Course Confirmation Day will run at the start of next year, where final approval for each course will be confirmed.
