The Australian Curriculum: Framework for Classical Languages aims to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to ensure students:

  • engage with the language, history and culture of the Classical world through interaction with texts
  • understand language, culture and learning and their relationship, through the medium of ancient texts and artefacts, and thereby develop intercultural understanding
  • understand how their own experiences of learning a Classical language extend their ways of viewing, engaging in and interpreting the contemporary world.

These three aims are interrelated and provide the basis for the two organising strands: Engaging with texts and Understanding.
