First Nations perspectives: integration across all learning programs
In July 2023 the new NSW draft History curriculum was released, shaping the future of History education. Contact histories will become a compulsory unit in secondary schools for the first time, as well as becoming a more prominent feature of the primary history curriculum. First Nations history is a topic many teachers find challenging and want support in to ensure they are teaching with integrity.
For nearly a decade, MHNSW has been delivering programs exploring contact history at the Museum of Sydney, Hyde Park Barracks and Rouse Hill Estate. Co-developed with First Nations knowledge holders, these programs offer students a rich and nuanced experience.
With your support, and working in partnership with First Nations communities, MHNSW will have the capacity to embed First Nations perspectives across all learning programs, as well as develop the skill, knowledge and cultural competency of our learning staff to deliver complex content.
Please consider making a tax-deductible gift, as every dollar raised, regardless of size, will help to ensure the history of NSW is discoverable and accessible for current and future generations.
