Social Sciences

Glenbrook students will develop the knowledge and skills to enable them to understand, contribute to and make connections with local, national and global communities. They will investigate how societies are shaped by different perspectives, values and viewpoints. As they explore how others see themselves, they will make links to their own identities in relation to their particular heritage and context. They will examine the bicultural nature of New Zealand society that derives from the Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the multicultural perspective of the world in which they live. Glenbrook learners will participate as critical, active, informed and responsible citizens.
