Close the Gap Day
Help your students learn about the gap in health outcomes between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous Australians with a free education pack from www.oxfam.org.au/ctgschools for Close the Gap Day on March 19. The resources show students how to create and participate in student-led action.
If little children are taught to focus on tasks and work on them they do better in maths and literacy by the age of six-seven. The results come from a study published in the journal Child: Care, Health and Development from research carried out by the University of Adelaide using data from more than 3400 children who participated in the Longitudinal Study of Australian Children when they were aged 2-3, then 4-5, and again at 6-7 years.
