Social Studies


Explore human societies, cultures, and events that have shaped the world. Students delve into history! Events, political systems, global issues, and societal structures, developing a nuanced understanding of the complexities of human interaction.

Did you know that rock art was the social media of our ancestors?! Or about what it was like to be in a war? Delve into human history and learn about our planet. Are you Living on the edge? Did you know that Water - It's life or death. Expand your worldly knowledge!

Building on your intermediate level knowledge, senior level Geography/History will help you develop an increasing awareness of your responsibilities towards other people and to the environment.  You will gain credits towards NCEA with all standards counting towards literacy and some towards numeracy.

For me studying Social Sciences - Geography & History are massively important. Geography gives us an awareness of space and an understanding of how globally interconnected we are. It allows us to make informed decisions about our environment and how we can make a difference – to be sustainable.

Like the Kāhu, look for the opportunity.

The Kāhu or Swamp Hawk watches over this learning space, used by many of our Juniors as a hub for learning and socialising. This space also provides private 'break-out' spaces used individually or collaboratively.
