Paper and statement by minister

MS BERRY (Ginninderra—Deputy Chief Minister, Minister for Education and Early Childhood Development, Minister for Housing and Suburban Development, Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence, Minister for Sport and Recreation and Minister for Women) (3.26): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education, pursuant to the resolution of the Assembly of 24 May 2000 concerning Indigenous education, as amended 16 February 2006—Annual report 2017-18.

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MS BERRY: Today I am presenting the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education report for the period July 2017 to June 2018. The report details the achievements and progress made against the dimensions or priorities of the cultural integrity framework. This report reflects the ACT government's commitment to meet the needs and aspirations of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

I am very proud of the diverse programs and opportunities provided for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. These include providing access for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families to the Koori preschool program across five schools, various partnerships between schools and the community to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives, languages and cultures in the curriculum, and development of local Ngunnawal learning and teaching resources.
