Social Studies

He aha te mea nui o te ao

What is the most important thing in the world?

He tangata, he tangata, he tangata

It is the people, it is the people, it is the people

Social Studies is about how societies work and how people can participate as critical, active, informed, and responsible citizens. Topics are drawn from the past, present, and future and from local, national and global locations. It helps to develop values and an understanding of differing perspectives which are aimed at developing students' key competencies.
