Grade 8 EMS

Grade 8 EMS

4 Seasons

EMS is about various governmental, economic, and business-related topics. The year begins with a revision of topics from grade 7 such as traditional societies, bartering, types of money, and banking. We then dive into the roles and levels of government and government expenditure, tax, accounting, as well as the impact of development on the environment, unemployment, and productive use of resources.

Students are provided with a foundational understanding of how to maximise profits through the effective management of resources. The ways in which private, public or collective resources are used to meet people’s needs and wants and how they can be exploited, are also critically reflected on. Expand your financial literacy, entrepreneurial skills, personal development, and development of the community through core business and governmental management principles.
