Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures

On this page

In the Australian Curriculum, cross-curriculum priorities give students the tools and language to engage with and better understand their world at a range of levels.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures cross-curriculum priority is designed for:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to see themselves, their identities and their cultures reflected in the curriculum, so that they can fully participate in it and build their self-esteem
  • all students to engage in reconciliation, respect and recognition of the world’s oldest continuous living cultures.
