Thank you for your consultation feedback

BOSTES would like to thank everyone who has contributed valuable feedback as part of recent consultations on Stage 6 and K-10 curriculum development.

Over the past 6 weeks, thousands of people have been involved in the consultation process, which included 46 meetings in metropolitan and regional locations across NSW.

Stage 6

More than 4000 people provided feedback on Stage 6 English, Mathematics, Science and History draft syllabuses via meetings, online surveys and written submissions, which will be used to guide the development of the final syllabuses.


1400 people have provided feedback on draft directions for syllabus development:

  • Science and Technology K–6
  • Technology (Mandatory) Years 7–8
  • PDHPE K–10

All feedback will be used to guide the development of the draft syllabuses.

Consultation has now closed.
