Protocols for Koorie education in Victorian primary and secondary schools


Product Description

The Victorian Aboriginal Education Association (VAEAI) has produced this guide – Protocols for Koorie education in Victorian primary and secondary schools – in response to requests for guidance on appropriate protocols for schools to follow when seeking to provide a welcoming school environment for Victoria’s Koorie communities, and for working respectfully with our Koorie community to enrich school curricula.

Reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians cannot be achieved and maintained without the effective teaching of Aboriginal studies and perspectives to all Australian students. At the state level, the Victorian Government has committed to working in partnership with Koorie parents and Communities to create an education system that respects, recognises and celebrates cultural identity, through practice and curriculum, to ensure a culturally inclusive education system for all Victorian students. The Victorian Aboriginal Education Association Inc. (VAEAI), established in 1976, is the peak body for Koorie education in the state of Victoria and as such holds a key systemic partnership role in all aspects of Koorie education.
