The Social Studies Philosophy which underlines the work of this department is the soul of our teaching and permeates, invigorates, and inspires the whole curriculum.
One of the goals of our Social Studies program is to help students develop an understanding of history, geography, economics and government. This Social Studies program also gives our young Canadian citizens background knowledge of national and world society.
Our purpose is to make available opportunities to students to help them develop civic responsibility through independent and critical thinking about themselves and their environment. The students will live their lives more effectively because they will have been taught to evaluate and judge events in their true perspective of the human actions who have shaped the destinies of nations.
