At our school students may do Community Studies within the mainstream subject after consultation with the subject teacher. Students do not choose the subject during Course Counselling day. The subject teacher manages the contract or plan.
Students learn in a community context and interact with teachers, peers, and community members. They decide the focus of their community activity/community application activity, which begins from a point of personal interest, skill, or knowledge.
By setting challenging and achievable goals in their community activity/community application activity, students enhance their knowledge and understanding in a guided and supported learning program. They develop their capacity to work independently and to apply their skills and knowledge in practical ways in their community.
As a non Tertiary Admission Subject (non TAS), Stage 2 Community Studies may contribute to SACE completion but cannot be counted towards an ATAR.
