School Curriculum and Standards Authority’s Consultation on ACARA’s Review of the F–10 Australian Curriculum

The Authority are conducting consultation workshops throughout May, to gather feedback on ACARA’s proposed revisions to the F–10 Australian Curriculum. This feedback is critical to ensure that the views of Western Australian (WA) teachers, academics, and professional associations are represented in the jurisdictional response that will be submitted to ACARA. The SCSA Consultation Website includes links to all draft consultation documents and a WA survey. Teachers who are unable to attend a consultation workshop, are encouraged to review ACARA’s proposed revisions and provide feedback using the WA consultation survey. Please note: Whilst ACARA are reviewing the F–10 Australian Curriculum, all WA teachers and schools must continue to teach, assess and report on the Western Australian curriculum as published in the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline.


Pedestrian Council of Australia | WSTSD 2021

On Friday 14 May, children from across Western Australia will put their feet first, and journey towards a healthier future by participating in the 22nd National Walk Safely to School Day. 
The annual event raises awareness of the health, road safety, transport, and environmental benefits that regular walking (especially to and from school) can provide for the long term wellbeing of our children.  Apart from the physical benefits, regular walking also has a favorable impact on their cognitive and academic performance.
