Actioning EATSIPS

The Embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Perspectives in Schools (EATSIPS) guide provides key examples of why we need to embed cultural perspectives in school communities and how we go about doing it.

These pages capture why and how the department is creating opportunities for schools to embed fully Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.

The implementation process, delivering EATSIPS on the ground in schools, is aided by careful attention and development around the four pillars of EATSIPS:

  • professional and personal accountabilities
  • curriculum and pedagogy
  • community engagement
  • organisational frameworks.

Remember—EATSIPS represents an important journey for our school communities to embark on. EATSIPS is everyone’s business—schools, teachers, students and families.
