Students’ social development involves students acquiring an understanding of the responsibilities and rights of being members of families and communities (local, national and global), and an ability to relate to others and to work with others for the common good.

They have opportunities to:

  • display a sense of belonging and an increasing willingness to participate.
  • make an active contribution to the democratic process in each of their communities .
  • develop an understanding of their individual and group identity.
  • learn about service in the school and wider community.
  • begin to understand the place they have within society and the role they need to play.
  • understand the changing nature of society and how this is an opportunity not a threat.
  • develop their compassion for others in society.
  • take initiative on wider social issues and establish ways they can help on an individual, local, national and global scale.
