Question 3c:
Is simply a different way of asking about inclusive practices; anti bullying policies; classroom rules; celebrating each child's culture (Harmony Dat, Multi
Cultural Lunches etc) Teaching of Aboriginal history through classroom themes/Inquiry.

Question 6
Is asking how a school should respond to the Elder's feedback making Aboriginal studies a constant in tje curriculum instead of just a one off.
Think about what you would do to ensure that aboriginal culture & history could be embedded through the entire curriculum such as:
Create a continuum of aboriginal studies to be taught from Prep to 6.
Create a resource of aboriginal elders & community members to advise the changes to the Curriculum
Hope this helps

Glossary of Terms
Cultural safety is a concept that emerged in the late 1980s and is defined as:
  • an environment that is spiritually, socially and emotionally safe, as well as physically safe for people; where there is no assault challenge or denial of their identity, of who they are and what they need. It is about shared respect, shared meaning, shared knowledge and experience of learning together.

Cultural competence is the ability to interact effectively with people of different cultures. ... Cultural competence means to be respectful and responsive to the health beliefs and practices—and cultural and linguistic needs—of diverse population groups.
