HSIE enhances each student’s sense of personal, community, national and global identity and enables them to participate effectively in maintaining and improving the quality of their society and environment.
The four broad strands of HSIE are:
- Change and Continuity
- Social Systems and Structures
Students develop knowledge, understandings, skills, and values and attitudes about people and their social and physical environments. Students will develop skills that enable them to acquire information, use an inquiry process and participate in social and civic life.
