Online workshops

In 2020 we will be providing a range of online workshops.

Due to changes brought about by COVID-19 Reconciliation NSW and the Schools Reconciliation Challenge have had to reschedule a range of activities and plan new online content.

To stay in the loop please register online to receive our Reconciliation in Education Newsletters. You can also register for one of our free online workshops which include professional development, cultural competence,  understanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in the classroom, reconciliation themes and how to activate your school to engage with Reconciliation Action Plans.


Free online workshops with the Powerhouse Museum Friday 28 August 2020.


Engage with First Nations perspectives on Caring for Country and sustainability by exploring the designs of leading Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, in this free video conference that brings the Powerhouse Museum into your classroom.

In this guided tour of the Museum’s Linear exhibition, learners will be encouraged to consider and create responses to the themes of Caring for Country and Reconciliation, as a part of the Schools Reconciliation Challenge 2020.
