Children will be taught about ‘survival day’ instead of Australia Day in politically-correct lessons about Aboriginal history

  • Year 8 students will be learning about ‘Survival Day’ rather than Australia Day
  • The politically-correct lesson is part of two weeks of homeschooling for students
  • The lesson was set by Queensland Education for parents to complete at home 
  • Opposition leader Deb Frecklington told state government to ‘get back to basics’










High school students will be learning about ‘Survival Day’ rather than Australia Day during newly implemented politically-correct homeschool lessons.

The lessons have been set by Queensland Education for parents to complete with their children while doing distance learning during the coronavirus pandemic.

An English task aimed at Year Eight students asks them to analyse a news article written by The Koori Mail with the headline ‘Groups set for Survival Day’. 

The assessment task, which is available on Education Queensland’s website, praises the article as ‘reliable and credible’ in its reporting of Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander events and activities for ‘Survival Day’ on January 26 in 2011.

‘Note that ‘Survival Day’ refers to the public holiday often referred to as ‘Australia Day’,’ the lesson sheet says.

‘The use of the term ‘Survival Day’ acknowledges the Aboriginal history of Australia and highlights issues associated with European colonisation.’

Students are told the news article includes a ‘credible and factual account of events’ while scolding other news media ‘in terms of their reliability, credibility and accuracy’.

Opposition leader Deb Frecklington called on the Queensland Labor government to ‘get back to basics’ rather than indoctrinate students.

‘The Labor government should not be forcing political viewpoints on our kids, especially during a worldwide pandemic,’ she told reporters on Saturday, The Sunday Mail reported.

‘The education system needs to get back to basics of English, maths and science rather than pushing ideological agendas. You don’t have to tear down Australia Day to recognise achievements and history of indigenous Australians.’ 

Queensland Education Minister Grace Grace said the lesson was about interpreting the validity of content and evaluating credible sources, which is a part of ‘politics and life in general’.  

‘It seems Ms Frecklington has failed to identify the bias in this exercise and subsequently flunked week one of Year 8 English,’ she said.
