Our commitment to social justice calls us to recognise, appreciate and celebrate cultural diversity.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures offer unique perspectives that are acknowledged across all Key Learning Areas. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures cross-curriculum area encompasses the concepts of Country and Place, People, Culture and Identity. St Paul's is committed to recognising, appreciating and celebrating cultural diversity. We support the learning needs of Indigenous students and understand the importance of developing strategies to address the specific needs of these students in our school.
St Pau’s is fortunate to have an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Teacher to support the learning of our Indigenous students. She works in classes to provide intervention and extension while supporting teachers in their understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives across the curriculum.
Our students have recently become members of our local Aboriginal Education Consultative Group AECG, providing feedback on their needs as students of our community. Being part of this group creates a sense of leadership that builds responsibility in our children.
