Christian Schools Australia is excited to partner with Australians Together in a collaborative project that aims to see educators equipped with confidence to communicate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives and inspire the next generation to pursue unity and restoration.
The resources on this site are a great support for teachers who seek to be wise peacemakers in classrooms, communities and across our nation.
Christian Schools Australia seeks that Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians would walk together in a shared narrative and a love of Country and our Creator.
