ACARA CEO addresses SMH School Summit

01 March 2021

ACARA CEO, David de Carvalho, recently took to the stage as part of the third annual Sydney Morning Herald Schools Summit to discuss the upcoming Australian Curriculum Review.

“Another way to describe what are hoping to achieve is that we want to give the Australian Curriculum the Marie Kondo treatment,” said Mr de Carvalho, who hopes the proposed revised curriculum will excite teachers.

“We want teachers to go on the public consultation website on 29 April and see a curriculum that they can’t wait to teach.”

We look forward to hearing views to help us improve the curriculum and ensure it serves our children, equipping them with the skills and knowledge they need to live fulfilling lives.

Whether you are a teacher, a parent, you work in education or are someone who has a particular interest in it, your feedback is important to us.
