Humanities

The social sciences have a critical contribution to make, in helping us understand, imagine, and craft a more sustainable future for all.

UNESCO

Humanities

Humanities is the exploration of human society – past and present – and the relationship between its members. That means us, our forebears and other people who inhabit the world. Junior Social Science is an action packed two year programme that allows students to experience a wealth of topics that lead into senior subjects: Social Studies, Geography, History, Economics/Accounting, Classical Studies and modern day issues like Human trafficking and Rhythm & Vines events.

All programmes are based on a co-operative learning style where each student has a scrap book that becomes their record of learning. In Humanities we encourage creativity and students are expected to be active participants and directors in their own learning. Group work requires the sharing of ideas, opinions and knowledge in a supportive collaborative environment.

Junior Business Studies is offered at Year 10. We canvas what it means to be enterprising and then demonstrate it by having our very own Market Day – sell the products you develop and you keep the profit. You will also learn the basics of accounting, so you know if you did make a profit.

The programme continues at Year 11 where NCEA Level 1 credits can be obtained. This is an entirely internally assessed course. Join us and let’s get to know our world and the people who make Earth their home.

The school office will be closed from 4pm Friday 8th December – Monday 22nd January 2024.
Enrolments can be submitted online via the “ENROL” tab. All other enquiries may be directed to info@lyttonhigh.net
