Heritage and Identity
Aboriginal Studies Stage 6


There's a pressing need for educational resources that include the voices of Aboriginal Peoples and Survivors of the Stolen Generations. These perspectives are integral for a comprehensive and authentic understanding of Australia's history, and are crucial to respect for principles of self-determination and representation.

Kinchela Boys Home has therefore developed a series of Aboriginal-led Syllabus Packages and Lesson Plans to assist teachers in delivering nuanced and culturally-informed content across the History, English and Aboriginal Studies curricula, that seek to foster empathy, truth telling, healing and active reconciliation.

About this Resource

Covering Outcomes P1.1 and P3.2 of the Stage 6 Aboriginal Studies Syllabus, this syllabus package examines government policies around the forced removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children through the unique experiences of survivors of the Kinchela Boys Home. Exploring the impact of colonisation on Aboriginal cultures and families – particularly the impact on social systems, language, religion and identity – and the impact of government racism and prejudice on family separation and the undermining of kin and culture, the Kinchela Boys Home serves as a crucial case study for the exploration of invasion and its intergenerational consequences.

The syllabus package contains:

  • 1 PDF for teachers, containing 10 detailed lesson plans with clear outcome-based guidance and activities;
  • 1 PDF for students, a 40 page in-depth activity booklet which situates the experiences of survivors of the Kinchela Boys Home in the broader scholarly context of the Stolen Generations, colonisation and genocide;
  • 1 multi-lesson PowerPoint presentation to support culturally-informed in-class discussion of survivors’ experiences.
