NATIONAL CURRICULUM FOCUS



The new Australian National curriculum gives special attention to three priorities:
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures will allow all young Australians the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures, their significance for Australia and the impact these have had, and continue to have, on our world.
  • Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia will allow all young Australians to develop a better understanding of the countries and cultures of the Asia region. Students will develop an appreciation of the economic, political and cultural interconnections that Australia has with the region.
  • Sustainability will allow all young Australians to develop an appreciation of the need for more sustainable patterns of living, and to build the capacities for thinking and acting that are necessary to create a more sustainable future.
The following books may be useful in integrating a focus on Asia into the classroom. For more information about curriculum requirements please consult the ACARA website.

PREMIER'S READING CHALLENGE



The Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC) is available for all students in Kindergarten-Year 9, in government, independent, Catholic and home schools. Participation by schools and students is voluntary.

The Challenge aims to encourage in students a love of reading for leisure and pleasure, and to enable students to experience quality literature. It is not a competition but a challenge to each student to read, to read more and to read more widely.
