Practice notes

Koorie Cultural inclusion is a system-wide shared responsibility at all levels of our department. In early years settings and schools, it is an important part of deepening learners' knowledge and understanding of their world, their country, their community and identity.

The Koorie Cultural Inclusion Practice Notes Resource was developed to facilitate reflection on existing Koorie cultural inclusion practices within schools – what it looks like at a whole school and classroom level. This resource provides examples of ways in which educators can enhance their practice to cultivate a culturally supportive and responsive learning environment in which Australia's First Nations Peoples contributions are visible and celebrated. It includes a school-based case study, teacher tips and leadership guidance that expands on Professional Practice Note 19 published in the teaching and learning professional practice suite in July 2019.
