Caring for Students - Anti-Racism

Anti-racism Education

The Department of Education is committed to eliminating racism through educating students, teachers, parents and involving the whole school community.

Culturally inclusive classrooms enable students from all cultural backgrounds and communities to identify as Australian, within our democratic multicultural society. This ultimately helps students to develop the knowledge, skills and values to participate fully as active Australian citizens and builds harmony within our society.

The Anti-racism Policy applies to all department employees and students. Anti-racism education – advice for schools provides guidelines for the implementation of the policy – indicators of racism in schools, its effects and strategies for countering racism.
