Social Sciences

Welcome to the Social Sciences Curriculum Area

The Social Sciences Department incorporates the curriculum areas of: 
• Junior Social Studies (Years 9 and 10) 
• Classical Studies (Years 12 and 13) 
• Geography (Years 11, 12 and 13) 
• History ( Years 11, 12 and 13) 

The Social Sciences is the only curriculum area that specifically focuses on the study of consequences of human interpretations of their world; the nature and consequences of human actions in the past and present; and the implications of these for the future. The role of the Social Sciences is to provide teaching and learning situations that enable students to develop the knowledge, understandings and skills that enable them to function effectively as members of increasingly diverse social, cultural and economic communities. 

With highly qualified and enthusiastic teachers the Social Sciences Department at Cullinane College at encourages students to learn the most that they can and achieve at a high standard. Staff use a range of stimulating learning activities from book work, film, NIE (Newspapers In Education), simulation games, investigations, discussions, research, ICT, guest speakers, fieldtrips as well as whole class teaching. Field trips and field work which are an important and exciting part of the curriculum for many of our senior subjects.
