Problem Statement

How might we embed Noongar based classes into our school curriculum?


Customer / Problem

Racism and inequality is causing reduced learning and wellbeing outcomes for the First Nations people in Australia. A lack of education in non-indigenous students on the culture and history of the First nation peoples in their area leads to discrimination and racism. 


Solution

Our solution is to embed indigenous knowledge within the existing school curriculum. For example, in Home Economics we will cook traditional foods, in history we will learn the history of the First Nations people, in dance and arts we will learn about indigenous styles, etc. We will increase the price of school fees by a small amount to go towards the Noogar subjects we are adding to our curriculum.
