The concept of the Australian Curriculum Project
has been developed by representatives from the water sector. An initial
Steering Committee was formed and developed
the scope and a business plan. Members of the initial steering committee were
from Sydney Water, Water Corporation, Qld Department of Environment and
Resource Management, SA Water, Melbourne Water and AWA. Sydney Water and SA Water were the first to contribute financially, followed by a large spectrum of organisations and agencies.
The Australian Curriculum Project is essential in ensuring
existing water education materials are updated, new materials are
developed and all resources are integrated into the Australian
Curriculum and produced in a new and useable digital format. Working
together will ensure resources are less duplicated, efforts can be shared and costs can be saved.
Importantly this project offers the opportunity for the water sector to
collaborate with national education agencies such as the Australian
Curriculum and Reporting Authroity (ACARA) and Education Services
The project was started in July 2012 for a three year period.
