Presenter

Executive Director

Stewart Bogle

Seeing people thrive is what drives me in life, and I'm passionate about getting to the heart of injustice and the systems and beliefs that are behind it. It's why I began my professional career as a teacher, and what led me to begin Australians Together. At Australians Together, we want to see Australian kids taught about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in a way that will change the narrative in our nation for the better. I invite you to join us on this mission.

Very good introduction, good use of inclusive language and very much enjoyed the ''hopeful'' or future thinking that was themed through out. The videos was a brilliant way to bring the human element into the ''facts''. Story telling is so important and i feel leaves a much greater impact and or influence on a person.

Thanks so much to the team at 'Australians Together' for this wonderful resource. This concept is real, relevant and desperately needed in every single classroom in Australia. I will recommend that our school absorbs the themes of truly being Australians together. Reconciliation is a verb for a reason and we must all do what we can to be a part of a much brighter future for this country we call home. Ken Berry (VCAL teacher at Bayside Christian College).

This is a great resource - particularly liked how in describing the 5 elements of any culture, it also acknowledged how we all need to consider our own culture and where it places us in our understanding of others' culture.
