Cross Curriculum Priorities

Heide Learning caters to two of the current cross-curriculum priorities of the Australian Curriculum and provides resources for teachers to use at Heide and in the classroom.

Gordon Bennett

Gordon Bennett (1955–2014) is regarded as one of Australia’s most important contemporary artists. His Aboriginal heritage was integral to his exploration of culture and identity.
