Cultural Responsiveness for Students and Children

1465 schools and early learning services have added this Action to their RAP.

Everyday programs for children and students include building knowledge and understanding of their own positionality and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge, skills and cultural identities. This helps to reduce prejudice and increases respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

To add cultural responsiveness into everyday programs and practices, you must first learn concepts and principles through cultural responsiveness training. 

You can then create culturally responsive learning experiences for your students. These culturally responsive teaching experiences should include teaching students about Australia’s true history and their own place and positionality in the racial structures (internalised, interpersonal and systemic racism) that continue to operate in Australia today.  

In addition, students should develop understanding of, value and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, perspectives and cultures, including their unique connection to the land, waters and skies. 

Other ways to support cultural responsiveness for students and children include: 

  • training courses 

  • film, art and music  

  • cultural experiences led by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. 

You must create ongoing learning opportunities to support these cultural responsiveness learning activities.
