$7 million in funding! It won't be a lump sum of course, it will be fed out as needed, but I believe this is a huge step forward.
Finding ways to help our indigenous people stay at school, having indigenous teachers who understand and can teach the cultural heritage along with the standard curriculum, surely this is a good thing.
We have Catholic schools, where religion is part of the curriculum, Jewish schools, where their culture and religion is studied, languages are studied such as French, German, Indonesian.
Now here is a chance for our own Indigenous people to have their own languages, culture and history studied as well as the usual Math, English, Science etc.
And it's about time! Should have happened years (decades) ago.
