Social Science 

The department of Social Sciences and the Humanities at Sir Wilfrid Laurier Secondary School encompasses three distinct subject areas: Family Studies, General Social Sciences, and World Religions. All three areas explore ways in which individuals influence and are influenced by families, communities, cultures, institutions, and societies. The issues that students confront in our courses vary from the abstract and theoretical, to the everyday and concrete. Through practical, hands-on experience, as well as through discussion and debate, research and reflection, our courses help students become proficient twenty-first century learners. Our courses give real-life practice with the six global competencies, by encouraging students to become self-motivated problem-solvers, and equipping them with the skills and knowledge to face their changing world with confidence.
