Social Sciences Faculty

Nau mai Harae mai, welcome to the Cashmere High School Social Sciences Faculty.

The Social Sciences at Cashmere High School include Social Studies, Geography, Tourism, History, Classical Studies, Economics, Business Studies and Accounting.

Students in these subjects undertake a range of learning opportunities from field trips in New Zealand and overseas, varying types and methods of assessment and interaction with community groups and businesses.

Social Sciences also incorporate many different guest speakers in classes with the emphasis on students being able to ask questions about a variety of topics.

The teaching staff in the Social Sciences are passionate and excited about what they teach and want the best learning outcomes for students. Many staff are involved with their various subject associations and are external exam markers. This means they are at the forefront of changes to the curriculum and are well placed to pass this on to the students.
