The Australian curriculum: The arts - intent and big ideas for implementation

Gattenhof, Sandra Jane (2015) The Australian curriculum: The arts - intent and big ideas for implementation. In Independent Schools Queensland: Support for Teachers of the Arts, 29 May 2015, Victoria Park Golf Club and Conference Centre, Brisbane, Qld. (Unpublished)


For the first time all Australian students having an entitlement to be engaged in all five art forms in Primary school.

The Australian Curriculum: The Arts is based on the principle that all young Australians are entitled to engage fully in all the major art forms and to be given a balanced and substantial foundation in the special knowledge and skills base of each.

This will have enormous implication on the expectations of what can be achieved in secondary schools, in tertiary institutions and ultimately on the cultural life and heritage for Australia.
