IEU Women and Equity Committee Forum
Building Community Connections: A focus on Aboriginal students and families
The focus of this year’s IEU Western Sydney Women’s Forum on 23 October will be on building Aboriginal cultural awareness in schools via specific strategies for staff and that such awareness is embedded into the daily life of schools.
As well as responsiveness to the local Aboriginal community cultural context and the needs of students and families, it is important to provide opportunities for all students to develop an understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and languages.
Completing Building Community Connections: A focus on Aboriginal students and families will contribute 45 minutes of NESA registered PD addressing 1.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.
