SAE seeks to embed opportunities for cross-cultural enrichment into its curriculum through its Collaborative Project-Based Learning Curriculum and International Exchange Programs.

SAE aims to integrate the stories and practices of Australia's first peoples into our curriculum and assessment practices as a regular theme, retelling the stories of Australia's first people through creative media to ensure that these stories can be told for generations to come.
