School of Education
The School of Education recognises the Darug as the traditional custodians of the land upon which we learn and teach
Educators shape the future. They change destinies, enrich lives and empower individuals to realise their full intellectual and social potential. They promote the intrinsic value of learning, reinforce the enduring values on which our society is grounded and challenge injustice. They are the critical interpreters of knowledge and the principal means by which the intellectual endeavours of previous generations are enriched and passed onto future generations. They build the human capital on which our economic and social wellbeing is founded.
