The SACE Board Aboriginal Education Strategy 2017-2021 aims to prepare more Aboriginal students to achieve their SACE while maintaining their Aboriginal culture and identity, as well as positioning them to succeed in their local community and as global citizens.
The strategy reflects a strong commitment from the education sector in South Australia to enhance the learning outcomes and capabilities for Aboriginal students, and the voice of Aboriginal students and their families has informed this strategy.
