NSW responses to ACARA draft shape papers for Languages and the Arts

As part of the ongoing process of contributing to the development of the Australian curriculum, the Board has coordinated the NSW response to the Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority’s (ACARA) draft shape papers on Languages and the Arts.

As with the development of the Phase 1 learning areas of the Australian curriculum, the Board has consulted widely with the education and broader community.

The Board has provided ACARA with the NSW response to these two draft shape papers. The responses outline the feedback received by the Board. The Board wishes to thank all those who participated in the NSW consultations.

These responses are now available on the Australian curriculum pages of the Board’s website.
