Civics, Citizenship, and the Law

Resources for civics and citizenship education support students in developing skills, knowledge and understanding about how communities are formed and function effectively. Learn the difference between rules and law to better understand how each level benefits and protects all citizens.

Teachers will also find resources explaining the many roles government undertakes at the local level, such as councils managing day to day responsibilities in providing important services throughout our communities.

Activities explain how important democratic concepts and principles based on the rule of law form the foundations of successful communities, such as respecting human rights and maintaining personal liberties for every citizen. Students learn about how a virtuous civic culture is developed and identify how they can contribute through developing important personal virtues, such as respect, tolerance, responsibility, and inclusiveness.

With greater understanding, everyone can become informed responsible citizens living in Australian society.
