Media Release: New Teacher Resources to Help Schools ‘Stomp Out The Gap’

21 May, 2018

The Cathy Freeman Foundation is calling on all schools across Australia to hold a gold-coin fundraiser to help stomp out the education gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous children.

Stomp Out The Gap (6 June) is a day that students, teachers, and parents can dedicate to learning more about their local Indigenous culture, whilst raising much-needed funds for the Cathy Freeman Foundation’s life-changing education programs for Indigenous kids.

To help schools plan ahead, the Foundation has partnered with Indigenous cultural educators and consultants, BlackCard, to launch a set of culturally approved Teacher Resources designed to give teachers the confidence and ease to teach students about local Indigenous culture.
