The Foundation is committed to helping young Australians learn about and appreciate the legacy of Sir Weary. To this end we have asked practicing teachers to produce resources appropriate to the following curriculum areas:
- Primary Schools at Year 6 – Australian Curriculum: history – What contribution have significant individuals and groups made to the development of Australian society?
- Secondary schools (history, civics and citizenship, English – creating biography) as a case study providing a short evidence-based approach to help students understand the significant contribution of Weary Dunlop to the Australian prisoners-of-war on the Burma-Thai Railway, and afterwards. It takes students through a variety of evidence, and provides a model that can be used to investigate other significant people in twentieth century Australian history.
