Explore Current Affairs and Issues

4964 schools and early learning services have added this Action to their RAP.

Raising awareness of current affairs and issues in the public domain that are of particular significance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples can help children, students and staff to better understand and empathise with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the process of reconciliation.

Learning about current affairs and issues for First Nations peoples ensures that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures are portrayed as alive, resilient and complex.

Incorporating current affairs into teaching about reconciliation and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues will:

  • make historic concepts more relevant for children and students 
  • give a concrete and relatable example of political and cultural perspectives.

Many current affairs and issues are connected to the past. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people today face challenges that stem from unjust colonial policies and practices of the past. 

Building children’s and students’ understanding of the past’s impact on the present and future will help them:

  • build empathy for their peers 
  • deepen their understanding of their place in the world.
