Cultural learnings: strengthening Aboriginal children's wellbeing

  • Description
    This project aims to strengthen the knowledge and self-esteem urban Aboriginal children have of their racial identity by developing, implementing and evaluating an intervention called Cultural Learnings. This project expects to generate new knowledge using an innovative, yet culturally secure transfer of knowledge from Aboriginal Elders and carers to children within a school environment. Expected outcomes include improved carers' efficacy in teaching children about identity and culture; improved school cultural security and improved range of strategies used by children in response to racism. These should provide significant benefits such a positive shift in children's school outcomes such as attendance, behaviour, attitudes, effort and achievement.
