The Social Sciences faculty provides learning experiences across a broad based curriculum. Collaborative learning, Civics and Citizenship, and Achieving your Potential are core values which the Social Sciences Faculty seeks to instill in all students at Auburn Girls High School.
The study of social sciences equips our students with the tools to better manage their lives as well as make a positive contribution to the wider community and deal with significant issues that impact on our lives. Students are encouraged to take risk with their learning and venture out into the real world through a variety of extension and enrichment activities.

The Social Sciences staff supports the school in the pursuit of ‘discovering your potential’ by continuously engaging in professional development. Through structured learning, team teaching and individual projects, staff are committed to improving educational practice.
