Who is this course for?

What will I learn

You will take an active role in planning, carrying out and documenting your own community activity using the community as a resource. You and your teacher will work together to develop a program according to your interest. Your background, skills, experiences and community interests are incorporated into this program, containing both research and practical tasks.

There are six areas of study available:

  1. Arts and the Community
  2. Communication and the Community
  3. Foods and the Community
  4. Health, Recreation and the Community
  5. Science, Technology, and the Community
  6. Work and the Community
