An international treaty was signed called the Declaration regarding the Teaching of History (Revision of School Textbooks) that was entered into force for Australia: 24 June 1939.
The intention was to present history in a certain light to conceal the fact that AUSTRALIA was being administered under a FOREIGN OCCUPIED DEFACTO GOVERNMENT, highlighting interdependance on other nations.
The Treaty States…
REALISING the necessity of removing the dangers that may arise through the promoting of certain historical events in school textbooks.
It is desirable that every Government should endeavour to ascertain by what means, more especially in connection with the choice of school books, school children may be put on their guard against all such allegations and interpretations as might arouse unjust prejudices against other nations.
In other words, they knew that Australians would be enraged to learn the truth about what was actually occuring right under their noses.
In WA, year 7 students are taught the UNITED NATIONS CURRICULUM. This current syllabus is preparing them for what is happening and what is to come. There is a focus on UN POLICIES such as CITIZENSHIP, INTERDEPENDENCE, INTERCONNECTION, preparing them for changes in their environment that the UN have planned.
Students learn the DEFINITION OF A CONSTITUTION as the fundamental principles on which a state or other organisation (such as a club) is governed. Usually this takes the form of a legal document setting out specific powers for the government or governing of that entity.
They do not learn about the INDISSOLUBLE Federal Commonwealth under the IMPERIAL CROWN) with the blessing of Almighty God that is the COMMONWEALTH CONSTITUTION ACT 1900.
THE PREAMBLE STATES: WHEREAS the people of New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Queensland, and Tasmania, humbly relying on the blessing of Almighty God, have agreed to unite in one indissoluble Federal Commonwealth under the Crown of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and under the Constitution hereby established:
And whereas it is expedient to provide for the admission into the Commonwealth of other Australasian Colonies and possessions of the Queen:
Commonwealth Constitution 1900 preamble
Be it therefore enacted by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows…….
Perhaps this could be because the AUSTRALIA ACT 1986 took the power of the states to a foreign crown that realigns the line of authority. Putting the states under FOREIGN ADMINISTRATION, making each state a constitutional monarchy of its own.
I invite you to follow the links that further explain the definitions that put the syllabus into context and come to your own conclusions.
Year Level Description
Students develop increasing independence in critical thinking and skill application, which includes questioning, researching, analysing, evaluating, communicating and reflecting. They apply these skills to investigate events, developments, issues, and phenomena, both historical and contemporary.
Students continue to build on their understanding of the concepts of the Westminster system and democracy by examining the key features of Australia’s democracy, and how it is shaped through the Australian Constitution and constitutional change. The concepts of justice, rights and responsibilities are further developed through a focus on Australia’s legal system.
An understanding of the concepts making choices and allocation is further developed through a focus on the interdependence of consumers and producers in the market, the characteristics of successful businesses, including how specialisation and entrepreneurial behaviour contributes to business success. Work and work futures are introduced, as students consider why people work. Students focus on national issues, with opportunities for the concepts to also be considered in relation to local community or global issues where appropriate.
The concepts of place, space, environment, interconnection, sustainability and change continue to be developed as a way of thinking and provide students with the opportunity to inquire into the nature of water as a natural resource. The concept of place is expanded through students’ investigation of the liveability of their own place. They apply this understanding to a wide range of places and environments at the full range of scales, from local to global, and in a range of locations.
Students develop their historical understanding through key concepts, including evidence, continuity and change, cause and effect, perspectives, empathy, significance and contestability. These concepts are investigated within the historical context of how we know about the ancient past, and why and where the earliest societies developed.
