The Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS)

In a world that is increasingly culturally diverse and interconnected, it is important that students come to understand their world, past and present, and develop a capacity to respond to current and future challenges, in innovative, informed, personal and collective ways.

At Rowellyn Park, the Humanities and Social Sciences play an important role in harnessing students’ curiosity and imagination about the world they live in and empowers them to actively shape their lives; make reflective, informed decisions; value their place in a diverse and society; and positively contribute locally and globally.

Our approach to teaching and learning H.A.S.S. focuses on developing core knowledge so that our students can understand, inquire and innovate in their world.

The Humanities and Social Sciences include:

  • Biological, Chemical, Physical, and Earth and Space Science
  • Civics and Citizenship
  • Economics and Business
  • History and Geography
