Australia’s Heritage

Leadership and Legacy of Australia’s Heritage

In this category students will consider and explore places, objects, events and/or cultural beliefs that we, as a multi-cultural nation, consider being part of our heritage.

Our heritage can be defined in many ways. But basically heritage refers to places and cultural ideals, which we consider worth saving and passing on to our future generations.  These things may be buildings or places of historical significance and the people and objects associated with them or past events which have shaped us as a nation. Students could research the historical context of places, events and people and what role they have or have not influenced Australia’s heritage.
