Aboriginal Studies

The Aboriginal Studies Years 7-10 syllabus is designed to develop knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal identities, communities, autonomy, roles and the range of relationships between Aboriginal Peoples and non-Aboriginal people.

Students may undertake either 100 or 200 hours of study in Aboriginal studies in Stage 4 and or Stage 5. Courses are structured in the following ways:

A 100-hour course can consist of either:

  • Core 1 or Core 2 and a minimum of three options
  • Core 1 and Core 2 and two options

A 200-hour course

  • Core 1 and Core 2 and six options

The core study and options may be studied in any order or pattern.
