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.
Stage 2 Community Studies can be studied as a 10-credit subject or a 20-credit subject in one or more of the ten areas of study.
Community Studies is not a Tertiary Admissions Subject and therefore cannot be used in the calculation of an ATAR.
