This unique TPL experience provides teachers with the opportunity to ‘Learn from Country’ with
local Aboriginal experts on Sydney Harbour, and apply this to the curriculum
with experienced Aboriginal Studies teachers & lecturers at the
historically significant precinct - the Block. These new knowledges,
understandings and skills will be workshopped with reference to the Aboriginal
and Torres Strait Islander cross-curriculum priority and the NSW syllabuses.
Participants will need to bring a teaching program, unit of work or assessment
task to get the most out of this experience. 

Presented by the TRIBAL WARRIOR ASSOCIATION and the
ABORIGINAL STUDIES ASSOCIATION

TRIBAL WARRIOR ASSOCIATION is a non-profit community organisation
established in 1998 by concerned Aboriginal people aiming to fulfil goals of
self-determination by spreading and vitalising Aboriginal culture and providing
economic and social stability. Governed by respected Aboriginal Elders and
grass roots community members, we have a long and proud history of working with
disadvantaged Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth, providing mentoring and
training leading to self-esteem, empowerment and employment.


Our programs are largely funded by our Cruises, Charters and Cultural Performances as well as donations and support from companies, NGO’s, governments and individuals. (www.tribalwarrior.org)

association that works in partnership with the NSW AECG. The ASA aims to:
