World Vision – Reconciliation Week LIVE

Just in case you missed the World Vision LIVE for Reconciliation Week 2020, here I am sharing from my experiences, how to embed First Nations cultures and histories within the curriculum and the importance of connecting with your local First Nations Communities.

Thank you to World Vision for the opportunity to share and inspire other non-Indigenous teachers. This was a part of the campaign for “In my blood it runs” and Reconciliation Week 2020.

Busy weeks ahead as we launched Our Land, Our Stories for AIATSIS and Nelson Cengage, kicking off Tuesday the 28th May, 2019 at the National Centre for Indigenous Excellence in Redfern.  I was honoured to join Mr. Craig Ritchie the CEO of AIATSIS and Ella Havelka, the first Aboriginal Ballerina for the Australian Ballet to launch this series during 2019 Reconciliation Week.

Over the past 18 months, I have been writing for this series along with connecting Nelson Cengage with our First Nations’s storytellers, communities and culture.

 I’m extremely proud to have written all 3 of the Teacher’s Resource Books (TRB) which are an essential element of this P-6 series.  The TRB’s have been designed to support every teacher to build their confidence to engage with embedding this Cross Curriculum Priority – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures.  These books flag cultural protocols you should be aware of, provides discussion points and learning activities to enhance the stories told by our 40 + First Nations Writers.

Additional to this, I have authored 2 of the Learning Cards – Koiki Mabo and My Bunya Gathering (co-written with Ellsy Mae Rudd).  Looking forward to the launches and sharing this stunning series with you all.
