What is my culture + Bringing Kaurna language into your curriculum

This day of professional learning combines two of Gowrie’s most popular culturally-focussed sessions. This is a chance to discover and reflect on your own culture and what it means to be a culturally competent educator working with children and families in your community. You will also explore Australia’s cultural context and identity and how this influences our role. Find out how to embed Kaurna words and songs in your daily work with children and how you can respectfully weave Aboriginal perspectives into your curriculum.
