The Faculty has two distinct streams of subjects:
Humanities (Social Science)
Both streams include Year 10 and Senior (Years 11 and 12) subjects. The Faculty provides a seamless progression of learning across the final three years of students’ schooling. Our Year 10 subjects have been designed to dovetail with Authority Senior subjects and to introduce students to the academic expectations of Years 11 and 12.
The Humanities stream also offers Year 7-9 SOSE. In the Middle School, Years 7-9 SOSE facilitates the development of knowledge, skills, attitude and values which enable them to participate as active and informed citizens in a democratic society within a global community.
Studying Business & Humanity subjects at Townsville Grammar School provides students with wonderful opportunities to experience subjects which have a genuine connectedness with the ‘real world’ through excursions, guest speakers and practical activities. For example; students who study Legal Studies and Business visit the law courts, Business and Economics students participate virtually in the share market through the ASX Share Market Game, Economics and Accounting students enjoy visits from guest speakers and visits to local firms, Accounting students attend an annual Finance conference at the James Cook University, Geography students attend camps for the purpose of gathering information in the field, Year 8 SOSE students participate in an environmental action initiative, while History students are visited by guest speakers and the Year 9 SOSE cohort participate in our Colonial Day.
Our unique structuring of Senior subjects allows students three years, rather than the typical two, to fully develop specific skills and knowledge. In our pursuit of best practice for our students we strongly believe that our approach to skills and knowledge acquisition enables our students to fully realise the School’s motto: Bonus Intra Melior Exi – Come in Good and Go out Better.
