Our Content Manager Katie Lowson explains how the team decided which areas of the curriculum to target when creating the new resources:
What a busy few weeks it’s been! We really wanted to give you some fantastic new resources for the new term so we worked against the clock while you were on holidays to put together a load of new content.
At Skwirk we’re passionate about supporting the Australian Curriculum in its quest to enhance intercultural understanding and provide students with the tools and language to engage with and better understand their world at a range of levels. With this in mind, and after receiving feedback from students & teachers keen for more resources in this area, we decided we’d make this our focus for new content to start the term.
So, take a look! Here are a few links to just some of what we’ve published this week:

It’s been a huge privilege to work with such talented teachers, curriculum specialists and animators to produce them!
