Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr D. Bond

In this course you will explore how laws and rights work. You will learn how we can improve the laws of the country and ensure people are treated fairly. You will explore different forms of government, with a focus on dictators such as Hitler. You will also be given the chance to participate in a mock election. This will involve forming political parties, campaigning and voting. This will be modelled on the New Zealand system.
