Tempe High School students are losing the opportunity to gain an insight into Aboriginal culture through the learning of an Aboriginal language. Tempe has been running the Aboriginal Languages course for at least 15 years. It is the only high school in Sydney to teach Wiradjuri, the language of the largest Indigenous nation in NSW. The opportunity to learn an Aboriginal language provides an engaging, educational experience. It teaches students language as well as culture and this encourages a much needed understanding and awareness of Aboriginal people and the significant role they play in our past, present and future. This unique opportunity is an important part of our community and is something that students, teachers and parents take pride in. Losing this program is a loss of the significant support and contribution the school makes to our Aboriginal community and to multiculturalism. We would like to let Mr Dassaklis, Principal of Tempe High School know that we do not want to see the Aboriginal Languages program go. We call on him to do everything that he can to keep the program running.
