Social and Community Studies fosters personal development and social skills which lead to self-reliance, self-management and concern for others.
It cultivates appreciation of, and respect for, cultural diversity and encourages responsible attitudes and behaviours required for effective participation in the community and for thinking critically, creatively and constructively about their futures.
