Note 19: Koorie cultural inclusion

This professional practice note supports teachers and school leaders to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural inclusion, as an enabling foundation for learning in all Victorian government schools.

The Framework for Improving Student Outcomes (FISO) clearly articulates the importance of fostering a positive climate for learning through whole-school approaches to setting high expectations and promoting inclusion. The Practice Principles, within the Victorian Teaching and Learning Model, provides demonstration of how whole-school priorities of inclusion are aligned with specific classroom practices and behaviours.

This note provides further guidance to support learning through inclusive practices that acknowledge, explore and celebrate the contributions and perspectives of Australian First Nations Peoples.
