ACARA Cross Curriculum Priorities Aim

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and culturesThe Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priority provides opportunities for all learners to deepen their knowledge of Australia by engaging with the worlds oldest continuous living cultures. Students will understand that contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are strong, resilient, rich and diverse. The knowledge and understanding gained through this priority will enhance the ability of all young people to participate positively in the ongoing development of Australia.

16Cross Curriculum Priorities Think; every subject across the school has to implement these priorities. We have to do it.
