Australian Social Education Company Says New Australian School Curriculum Provides Fantastic Opportunities for Cross Cultural Learning


VICTORIA, Australia June, 2012 – The introduction of the new Australian curriculum with a focus on sustainability has opened new doors and many possibilities for change and growth in the educational landscape. Destination Dreaming – a not-for-profit Australian education company – sees this as an encouraging development towards positive international relations and promoting understanding of other cultures.

Destination Dreaming is an Australian social enterprise that works with schools to create sustainable community partnerships that teach young people about global citizenship, self-awareness and social justice.

Destination Dreaming programs are founded on life education – the development of knowledge, skills and values to charter life’s course and implement social change. Destination Dreaming works with schools that are committed to long term, sustainable partnerships with community and the provision of meaningful, experiential learning opportunities for their students.

“We are very excited about the new Australian school curriculum and have partnered with Social Education Victoria (SEV) to map our existing programs directly to the proposed curriculum, particularly the cross-curriculum priorities,” says Kate Miller, Program Director for Destination Dreaming. “We now have even greater scope to work with schools in mapping our programs directly into school curricula, as well as the benefits for schools in terms of meeting curriculum requirements in an inspiring, experiential and challenging way.”

Destination Dreaming has recently entered into a formal partnership with Social Education Victoria (SEV), a professional organisation supporting teachers of Civics and Citizenship, Politics, Sociology and Social Justice Coordinators. The organisation is also working together with SEV to offer professional development for teachers in the areas of service, cross cultural learning and community engagement.

The community service group provides cultural and social service programs that teach young people to thrive in a global world by facilitating practical social education programs with a focus on sustainability. Destination Dreaming programs broaden student capabilities, including intercultural understanding, critical thinking, and ethical behaviour.

Kate says, “We take students outside the classroom to learn about culture, community and social justice. Through ongoing community partnerships, schools and young people share a two-way learning experience, learning about one another’s culture and working together on a grassroots development project.”
