What people are saying about Koori Curriculum

So Many Valuable Ideas

“Honestly there were so many valuable ideas shared by Jessica that I'm very keen to implement in my service. I'm going to look back over my notes with my team to see how we can implement some of these ideas.”

Lamisse Kazzi

How to Program Culturally and Appropriately for Children

“I really appreciate having been given a resource audit as this is something that is easy to implement and helpful to identify gaps within children’s spaces.

I also really liked insight into how to program culturally and appropriately for children in an individual way, as well as an achievable way. All of the suggestions are something that can be easily implemented in a big service that I’m in, with ease and no feelings of overwhelming.

Which means a great outcome for the children, families and educators in the service. Thank you!”

Emily Claringbold

It was an Amazing Workshop

“It was an amazing workshop. The biggest thing that stood out to me was integrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander resources that were authentic to the community and naturally included within experiences, rather than having implementation be a “theme” e.g. NAIDOC week etc.

I also loved the comment about anaphylaxis question on an intake form with a clear picture of next steps, whereas ticking a box off for background and culture didn’t have clear explanation as to why info was being gathered.”

Elizabeth Saa

Engaging Strategies & Ideas

“Definitely going to use the strategies to learn more to develop my confidence in embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander teachings in the learning environment and culture authentically.

I also learned how and when to ask questions and to be sure to do it respectfully and be mindful that everyone is an individual person.”
