This element involves students recognising others’ feelings and knowing how and when to assist others.
Students learn to show respect for and understand others’ perspectives, emotional states and needs. They learn to participate in positive, safe and respectful relationships, defining and accepting individual and group roles and responsibilities. Students gain an understanding of the role of advocacy in contemporary society and build their capacity to critique societal constructs and forms of discrimination, such as racism and sexism. In developing and acting with personal and social capability, students:
- appreciate diverse perspectives
- contribute to civil society
- understand relationships.
Typically by the end of Foundation Year, students:
Appreciate diverse perspectives
acknowledge that people hold many points of view
Contribute to civil society
