Through Studies of Society and Environment (SOSE) students should develop knowledge, skills, attitudes and values which enable them to participate as active and informed citizens in a democratic society and within a global community.
At Townsville Grammar School, SOSE is studied as History and Geography, with Civics being embedded in both disciplines. In 2013, the teaching, learning, assessing and reporting of History will be based on the Australian Curriculum. As Geography and Civics are yet to be phased in as part of the Australian Curriculum, this part of the SOSE course in Years 7-9 continues to be developed from the SOSE Key Learning Area (KLA) of the Essential Learnings.
