Humanities, Social Sciences & Languages (HASSL)

Humanities and Social Sciences 

Humanities and Social Sciences involves the study of how groups and individuals live together and interact with their physical and cultural environment.

Humanities and Social Science develops students’ abilities to:

  • analyse and reflect on their place in contemporary society
  • actively explore and participate in the world around them
  • make reasoned and informed decisions about social and environmental issues.

Students in Years 7-10 study History, Geography, Economics & Business and Civics & Citizenship.

The study of Humanities and Social Sciences at Narrogin SHS is based on a multiple social science disciplinary approach to learning. The Humanities and Social Science Learning Area provides frequent opportunities for students to acquire the knowledge, skills and values to become active citizens in a rapidly and fast-paced changing world. Students will be equipped with the necessary skills to self-manage the process of investigation, communication and participation or social inquiry. This will ultimately lead to students becoming critical thinkers and demonstrating an understanding of various perspectives from both past and present contexts.

Humanities and Social Science students have the opportunity to engage and take part in a variety of activities, excursions and competitions, which enhances their learning experience.

Students in Years 11 and 12 have the opportunity to study the following courses: 

  • Geography ATAR
  • Modern History ATAR
  • Career and Enterprise Foundation
  • Career and Enterprise General 
  • Accounting and Finance General 
  • Certificate II in Workplace Skills 
  • Certificate III in Business 
  • Certificate II Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways
