Integrated Studies includes elements of Science, History, Geography, Civics and Citizenship, the Economy and Enterprise. Students study human progress and how people have organised themselves into societies and how they have interacted with their physical environment. By analysing and discussing the past and the present, students make sense of their world.
Studies are undertaken at local, national and global levels, providing students with the opportunity to develop greater knowledge and understanding of their society and environment and how it may differ from others. Through local action initiated by the students in consultation with teachers as a result of classroom studies, the students can see that acting locally can make a difference globally.
Students develop skills which enable them to collect and process data, inquire, investigate, analyse, design, solve, clarify values and attitudes, present information in different ways, develop confidence to answer questions, make decisions and participate in activities that enhance community life and democratic practices.
