The Humanities Department at Pasir Ris Secondary aspires to cultivate a passion for the study of academic disciplines covering human behaviour and culture.  

The subjects include Geography, History, Social Studies and Elements of Business. In addition, we are preparing our students for the evolving complexities of the globalised world by infusing experiential and hands-on learning opportunities. As part of professional learning, we continue to innovate our instructional programs by using IPad applications in our teaching and learning. In addition, we continuously seek ways for students to apply what they have learnt in the Humanities curriculum into real life contexts, anchored on current affairs.

In 2014, our school started the Applied Learning Programme (ALP) in Humanities and Languages. This resulted in an increase in the variety of Humanities Subjects offered at the Upper Secondary levels. In addition, a thinking paradigm utilising the Elements of Thought and Intellectual Standards was adopted. Together with an emphasis on current affairs, we aim to develop our students into concerned citizens who will be able to contribute meaningfully back to Singapore.
