Dominic College integrates the Australian Curriculum’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures priority into its teaching and learning programs.
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures priority provides opportunities for all students to deepen their knowledge of Australia by engaging with the world’s oldest continuous living cultures. Through the Australian Curriculum, students will understand that contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are strong, resilient, rich and diverse.
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures priority uses a conceptual framework to provide a context for learning.
The framework comprises the underlying elements of Identity and Living Communities and the key concepts of Country/Place, Culture and People.
Commencing in 2022, all Dominic College staff will undertake to complete modules of training to enhance their Aboriginal Cultural Awareness and Competency.
