Social Sciences Pathway
Unuhia te rito o te harakeke kei whea te kōmako e kō?
Whakatairangitia – rere ki uta, rere ki tai;
Ui mai koe ki ahau he aha te mea nui o te ao,
Māku e kī atu he tangata, he tangata, he tangata!
The Social Sciences learning area is about how societies work and how people can participate as critical, active, informed, and responsible citizens. Contexts are drawn from the past, present, and future and from places within and beyond New Zealand. We use key concepts to make connections across different contexts.
Through the Social Sciences, students develop the knowledge and skills to enable them to better understand, participate in, and contribute to the communities in which they live and work; and engage critically with societal issues.
