In the latest update to the live curriculum, the Department of Education has provided guidance for parents to follow to make sure they can safely get their children to primary school.
The update to 1st Grade is designed to provide parents with information and advice to help them select the best curriculum for their children.
“If you’re planning on going into primary school this year, there are a few things you should be aware of,” a Department of Primary and Secondary Education spokesperson said.
“You should not have any concerns about your children’s ability to attend the school, if you do have concerns about it, please contact your local school and make sure that they are safe.”
The latest update for 1stGrade is the first since the ABC’s investigation into the use of the online curriculum to indoctrinate children.
This latest update also comes as the Department for Education released new guidance that parents should check before using the curriculum.
It is a “great step forward” for parents who are concerned about the online version of the curriculum, said the spokesperson.
“But it is also a great step forward for schools, parents and the public,” the spokesperson said, adding that parents can also check the latest version of their child’s curriculum from the Department.
“It is also important to remember that the curriculum is being created to be used in an online format, so if you don’t have access to a computer or mobile device, you can still use it for educational purposes.”
The Department for Primary and Primary Education has been contacted for a comment.
