Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration

The Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration was launched today by Australian Education Ministers in the Northern Territory.

The Declaration sets out our collective vision for education in Australia and our commitment to improving educational outcomes for each and every individual across the country.

It follows significant consultation with educators, students and their families, with a particular focus on the perspectives from our young people who have the greatest stake in education.

Importantly, the Declaration aligns with our Government’s ongoing commitment to providing the best possible learning environment for students.

Equity, access and engagement, early learning and student well-being are priorities in the Tasmanian Government’s long term Plan for education.

To improve lifelong education and well-being outcomes, we are investing in the early years of life when children learn to communicate, get along with others and control and adapt their behaviour, emotions and thinking.

The Hodgman majority Liberal Government supports the well-being of students and staff across Tasmania and demonstrate our commitment to creating learning environments that are welcoming, safe and inclusive for all.
