This web forum is for Principals and School leaders to share their school's progress in developing Asia literate curriculum.
How is your school developing an Asia literate curriculum?
This is a critical moment in history for Asia literacy in Australia. There is current cause for optimism with the Melbourne Declaration on Education Goals for Young Australians calling for Asia literate curriculum, and Asia and Australia's engagement with Asia as a cross-curriculum perspective in the Australian Curriculum.
Former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has urged that Australia give effect to a much higher Asia literacy in a speech delivered at the Asialink Asia Society National Forum at Parliament House, Canberra.
Opening this forum is Chris Presland, Principal of St Clair High School NSW, who keynote speaker at Round 2 of the Leading 21 Century Schools: Engage with Asia project talking to NSW Principals and School Leaders. Chris is actively involved in the national education landscape and is executive member of the largest state principals' association: NSW Secondary Principals Council.
