Symposium – 27 May, 2020
The Symposium day, following the NPF, will focus on Sustainability and see the launch of the second Cross-Curriculum Priority (CCP) document. The Australian Curriculum and Melbourne Declaration identify three key areas that need to be addressed for the benefit of both individuals and Australia as a whole: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures (CSA Doc released 2019), Sustainability, and Australia’s engagement with Asia.
The Sustainability priority provides the opportunity for students to develop an appreciation of the necessity of acting for a more sustainable future and so address the ongoing capacity of Earth to maintain all life and meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of future generations.
In conjunction with Christian Heritage College, CSA will produce a GBS (2.0) Companion document which presents this Cross-Curriculum Priority from a Biblical Worldview. This will be in keeping with the move by CSA to adopt a position of “profess”. This has been framed as “…being good stewards of the environment.” The project will be led by Richard Leo, Lecturer in Education and Humanities at Christian Heritage College.
