At Court Grammar School, Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) revolves around exploring the effects of change on societies, individuals and groups. Students are challenged to describe and investigate events and developments from different perspectives and from different lens- historical, geographical, economical and societal. From creating Ancient Egyptian artefacts in Year 7, market stalls in Year 8, to guided tours of the Western Australian Supreme Court in Year 9, the HASS Departments seeks to creatively engage all students in a diverse curriculum where no student is left behind and none is held back from reaching their potential.
Humanities and Social Sciences is the study of human behaviour and interaction in social, cultural, environmental, economic and political contexts. Humanities and Social Sciences has a historical and contemporary focus, from personal to global contexts, and considers opportunities and challenges for the future.
By studying Humanities and Social Sciences, students will develop the ability to question; think critically; make decisions based on evidence; devise proposals for actions; and communicate effectively.
Thinking about, reflecting on, and responding to issues requires an understanding of the key historical, geographical, political, legal, economic, business and societal factors involved, and how these different factors interrelate.
