Aboriginal Education


We respectfully acknowledge the past and present traditional owners of Western Australia and pay our respects to the leaders of the traditional custodians of this land.

Together we acknowledge the contributions of Aboriginal Australians and non-Aboriginal Australians to the education of all children and people in this country we all live in and share together - Western Australia.

The Department of Education is committed to improving the educational achievements of Aboriginal students in schools and to enhancing the knowledge and understanding of all Western Australian students about the history, heritage and cultures of Aboriginal Australians.
