National Close the Gap Day is being held on Thursday 20 March 2014. It’s Australia’s largest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health campaign, and a great way for schools to tackle the Australian Curriculum cross-cutting priority of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures.
Register now at www.oxfam.org.au/closethegapday to receive a free resource pack from Oxfam to help your students learn about the gap in health outcomes between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous Australians, and create and participate in events that are all about student-led action and community engagement. Multiple campuses should register multiple events.
