Last updated 9:57 PM on 8 February 2015

Connected Communities is a new approach to address the educational and social aspirations of Aboriginal children and young people living in a number of complex and diverse communities in NSW.

The strategy positions schools as community hubs that will deliver a range of services from birth, through school, to further training and employment.
Connected Communities schools work in partnership with Aboriginal leaders in the local community to help improve education outcomes for young Aboriginal people.
The strategy has been informed by advice from the Aboriginal Education Consultative Group (AECG), and a broad consultation process with key stakeholders, underpinned by progressive educational research that highlights the value of place-based approaches to education.

Connected Communities!
