Cross Curriculum Priorities

The Western Australian Curriculum must be relevant to the lives of students and address the contemporary issues they face. With this and the education goals of The Melbourne Declaration in mind, the Curriculum gives special attention to three priorities:
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and cultures
  • Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia
  • Sustainability
For the Arts, the priorities have been included in the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline for The Arts (K-10). Visit the School Curriculum and Standards Authority website for further information about General Capabilities and Cross-Curriculum Priorities.
To assist teachers and artists to develop relevant and authentic activities, ArtsEdge resource portals can now be accessed online for Aboriginal and Torre Strait Islander arts and culture in education and Asia Literacy.
