Our School - HaSS

 The Humanities and Social Sciences/HaSS subjects provide opportunity for students to develop the knowledge and skills they need to develop a broad understanding of the world in which we live and how people can participate as active and informed citizens. Through the key concepts of Civics and Citizenship, Economics and Business, Geography, and History, students will develop the ability to question; think critically; make decisions based on evidence; devise proposals for actions and communicate effectively. Concepts are the means to developing the powerful knowledge needed by our students to function as global citizens.

 

At Tuart Forest Primary School HaSS,  is in the first year of a two year developmental phase. Through professional interactions with Teacher Development Schools, the HaSS Committee is creating a scope and sequence, of key concepts, based on the Western Australian School Curriculum Standards Authority, reflecting the values and ethos of our school.

Teachers collaborate in Year groups to ensure focus questions, term planning and assessments are consistent.
