Social Studies





Understanding the interconnectedness of human experience in society and his role as active citizens in the community and the world…

Our Approach
The Social Studies curriculum aims to nurture informed, concerned, and participative citizens who are equipped with the knowledge, skills and attitudes for them to make a positive change to their communities and the world.
