The primary purpose of learning in Society and History is for young people to develop the ability to make reasoned and informed decisions as self-directed, ethical and responsible citizens of a culturally diverse, democratic society in an interdependent world. The study of Society and History provides opportunities for all students to become active, engaged, lifelong learners able to participate as responsible citizens and contribute to global sustainability through inquiry and analysis, and critical and reflective thinking.

Society and History provides students with opportunities to participate as informed and responsible citizens. Learning opportunities in Society and History enable students to make meaning of their learning in the context of their whole lives, develop a system of personal values, and act to promote democracy, social justice and ecological sustainability.

The skills, knowledge and understanding acquired in Society and History enable students to take their place as confident communicators, critical and imaginative thinkers, lifelong learners and active participants in Australian society.
