Teach about Days of National Significance

1248 schools and early learning services have added this Action to their RAP.

Schools and early learning services should incorporate nationally significant days for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and for reconciliation more generally, into their curriculum. The inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives should also be a core part of teaching about important national days, such as 26 January (Australia Day) and ANZAC Day.

There are many days and weeks that are significant for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and reconciliation. They provide an anchor point for teaching students and children about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions, and current issues. 

They are an opportunity to engage with:

When other national days come up, like 26 January (Australia Day) and 25 April (Anzac Day), include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices and perspectives in discussions, lessons and activities. This will give students a more balanced understanding of the diverse viewpoints about the significance of these days.
