General capability: Intercultural understanding – Recognising culture and developing respect
Students develop intercultural understanding as they learn to value their own cultures, languages and beliefs, and those of others. They come to understand how personal, group and national identities are shaped, and the variable and changing nature of culture. The capability involves students in learning about and engaging with diverse cultures in ways that recognise commonalities and differences, create connections with others and cultivate mutual respect.
- Students explore ways that culture shapes the use of language in a wide range of contexts.
- Students understand the importance of maintaining and celebrating cultural traditions for the development of personal, group and national identities.
