"One of the priorities of the Closing the Gap reporting is that Indigenous
cultures and languages are “strong, supported and flourishing”. It also calls
for Indigenous students to “achieve their full learning potential”.

These two priorities are listed in totally different sections of the report but
they are very much connected.

Schools can play a big role in Indigenous language revitalisation and creating
a strong sense of identity and belonging for students, supporting their
wellbeing and learning.

Our new research shows how this can be done through co-designing curriculum
resources with local communities that privilege local knowledge, strengths,
stories and languages."
