Studies of Society and Environment
In SOSE students discover and interpret the world around them through the fields of history, geography, commerce and civics. SOSE courses have a strong emphasis on critical thinking, research, and expressing ideas using various forms of written and oral communication.
Our students study SOSE at each year level via a combination of compulsory and elective units.
