This page provides a one-stop shop for many of the key resources, organisations and individuals around which this curriculum is based.
It is important at the outset to note that we must act with respect and recognition of the resources, both human and otherwise, contained within this Guide. They are the keepers of the knowledge so central to this work – this must always be recognised when in turn sharing this knowledge with students. It is the role of the teacher to connect their students to the individual, organisation or resource, so the knowledge may be shared.
Further, this respect and recognition means that at time there are particular terms on which we should engage with these curriculum resources. This is no different to any other part of your curriculum program (e.g. when it comes to physical resources, guest speakers, incursions and excursions). Guidance is provided around this where relevant.
For assistance with arranging a guest speaker, it is best to contact your school’s KESO or the GVAECG (Goulburn Valley Aboriginal Education Consultative Group, contact details below).
Please note: a list of recommended speakers, along with guidance on how to appropriately engage with these speakers, is currently being developed.
