John Butler Primary College

Humanities and Social Sciences

The Humanities and Social Sciences learning area develops students’ understandings of how and why individuals and groups live together; interact with and within their environment; manage resources; and create institutions and systems.


Students further understand that, over time, these relationships and interactions may change to varying degrees.


At John Butler Primary College students develop these understandings through processes of social inquiry, environmental appraisal, ethical analysis and the skills to constructively critique various perspectives from past and present contexts.


Students are encouraged to apply their understandings and skills in their own lives, in developing environmental consciousness, social competence and civic responsibility. In doing so, they are engaged in actively exploring, making sense of and contributing to improving the world around them.
