The implementation of the Australian Curriculum provides an opportunity to deliver on the outcomes for schooling expressed in the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (MCEETYA 2008). Using the resources and activities below, principals and curriculum leaders are able to embrace uncertain, complex and diverse contexts and work with others to seek creative and innovative solutions that support quality outcomes for all.
Viewing these videos, educators will be aware of the diversity amongst their school community. It will provide them with a gentle reminder of the students that they have within their school community.
Note: The first video in this activity is 45 minutes long. It was taken in 2012 and is a look at 'growing up poor in Australia'.
This project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.
