Social Sciences

The Social Science faculty at Merewether High School is a dynamic department with a strong tradition of academic excellence. The faculty is committed to helping students to learn, understand and apply knowledge and skills.

We recognise that students live in a world characterised by rapid change. As a consequence we challenge students to respond to the unpredictable and unexpected. Future success depends on knowing how to adapt, to apply and to understand what is needed to solve problems. With this in mind, we prepare students to be participative leaders and effective, responsible citizens.

The Social Science faculty has a strong connectedness with the broader community. This allows the faculty to draw on greater community expertise to broaden the quality educational experiences provided by staff.

We enhance learning by providing substantial extra-curricula activities. These include, but are not limited to, interstate geography excursion, mock-trial and debating competitions, and intra-state business-in-operation visitations. Experiences beyond the classroom provide students with the opportunity to integrate real world applications and values with theoretical knowledge.
