The Social Studies Department encourages students to understand their world and the significant role they play with regard to responsible citizenship and stewardship. All levels focus on political and economic systems, and the history that has influenced our current events. We are proud of our results on provincial diploma exams and the interest that these courses generate in our students.

We offer -1 and -2 classes in all grades. Although these course streams follow the same curriculum, -1 classes require excellent attendance and a self-motivated student to achieve success. Competent writing skills will be required to effectively respond to the challenging essays for this level. -2 courses are accepted for entrance to most post-secondary institutions. Essays focus on identifying essential curriculum and constructing an informed position on issues. This course offers a straightforward academic approach to Social Studies content.

Interact, Model UN, Chess Club, Military History and Agents 4 Change are some of the extra-curricular clubs offered by our department. Look for club information and sign up in September. All students are invited to participate!

Grade 10 – Globalization
