Why teach all Australian kids about notable Aboriginal woman, Cathy Freeman?

Teaching Australian children about Cathy Freeman provides a great opportunity to:

  • learn about the achievements of an Aboriginal Olympian
  • consider the effect Cathy Freeman has had on racism
  • consider the importance of good role models
  • learn about her charitable initiatives
  • challenge stereotypes about who makes a sporting champion.

A great addition to your collection of First Nations resources
