About the subject

Community Studies offers students the opportunity to learn in a community context and to interact with teachers, peers, and community members beyond the school environment.

Students decide the focus of their community activity, which begins from a point of personal interest, skill, or knowledge. By setting challenging and achievable goals in a community activity, students enhance their skills and understandings in a guided and supported learning program. They develop their capability to work independently and to apply their skills and knowledge in practical ways in their community.

Students prepare a contract of work to develop a community activity from any of the following ten areas of study:

  • Arts and the Community
  • Business and the Community
  • Communication and the Community
  • Design, Construction, and the Community
  • Environment and the Community
  • Foods and the Community
  • Health, Recreation, and the Community
  • Science and the Community
  • Technology and the Community
  • Work and the Community

Assessment

Assessment at Stage 1 is school based. Students demonstrate evidence of their learning by completing their contract of work through the following assessment types:

  • Contract of Work
  • Reflection.
