The Healing Foundation’s Stolen Generations Resource Kit for Teachers and Students has been created to educate young people about the Stolen Generations. It makes it easy for school communities to start the conversation and inform classroom discussions using facts, real examples and stories.
Cultural consultation and guidance from Stolen Generations members has been an essential part of this project. The Healing Foundation has also worked closely with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous teachers, parents, early childhood specialists and curriculum writers.
This teaching resource has been developed to introduce students from Foundation to Year 9 to the firsthand experiences of Stolen Generations members. While the policies and suffering of the Stolen Generations is only one part of the ongoing story of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, it is an essential one to learn and to teach so students have a full understanding of the history of Australia.
Cultural consultation and guidance from Stolen Generations members has been an essential part of creating this project. We would like to acknowledge the Healing Foundation’s Stolen Generations Reference Group members who guided the development of this project.
Healing Foundation Programs, Policy and Knowledge Creation Portfolifio Lead, Mr Lou Turner said the resource is very important, “This significant resource is now available for our communities to teach our children and young people the stories, experience, and truths of our Stolen Generations.”
“It is our hope this resource can influence the learning journey that supports a broader collective and intergenerational healing process for all our communities.” Said Mr Turner.
