Aboriginal Studies enables students to develop knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal Peoples, cultures and experiences. It is designed for all students and is of value to both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal students.

Aboriginal Studies provides opportunities to develop knowledge and understanding of the diverse cultures, identities and lived experiences of Aboriginal Peoples. It explores the importance of autonomy and self-determination, and the range of relationships between Aboriginal Peoples and non-Aboriginal people. The development of research and consultation skills for respectful engagement with Aboriginal communities enables students to become active and informed advocates for a just and inclusive world.

Aboriginal Studies is designed to be inclusive of all students in NSW schools, and is of value to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander students, and non-Aboriginal students.
