School program celebrates heritage

  • 25 Sep 2023

Students can engage in content about their local environment and bring it to life in the classroom! 

Introducing a new series of primary curriculum materials for local schools to learn more about the unique heritage of the local area.  

Connected to the historical, cultural, and natural landscape of the Gilead region, this series of engaging narratives and supporting materials, is sure to engage and excite your students about stories and places in their own backyard.

The program is designed to support primary school teachers and students through their learning journey. The overall goal is for students to gain knowledge and skills through investigating and responding to real-world, engaging, and complex problems, challenges, or questions.

Participating schools can access free curriculum guides, and full access to our digital library of narratives, videos, historical photographs, and interactives resources. To access the free resources, visit the schools page of our website. 

Each unit contains:

  • Teacher Guide which provides clear curriculum mapping, lesson plans, assessment, and extension activities.
  • Student Guide which enables students to develop their critical thinking and encourage student learning through a project-based approach.
  • An engaging narrative. 


We partnered with the experts at Kimberlin Education to bring these resources to life. We would like to thank members of the Figtree Hill First Nations Advisory Group and the Campbelltown and Airds Historical Society who provided ideas and feedback on the program.
