Two – Way Science

Leonora DHS is a lead school in Two-Way Science. Students learn science that links Aboriginal ecological knowledge through on-Country and classroom projects to the Western Australian Curriculum: Science. This approach to teaching is referred to as Two-way Science and provides a context for delivering the Western Australian Curriculum: Science.

In Leonora community, cultural organisations bring traditional and cultural knowledge, and work alongside staff at the school, particularly local Aboriginal staff, to help make the curriculum relevant and engaging for students. It is a process of collaboration, cross-cultural communication and engagement. The result of this collaboration is that new ideas are introduced to students through a cross-cultural lens so they become comfortable with the curriculum that is being taught to achieve learning outcomes.
