The three-dimensional design of the Australian Curriculum includes the cross-curriculum priorities (CCPs), learning areas and general capabilities (GCs). While learning areas are deemed 'what students need to know', the GCs and CCPs indicate 'what sort of people students ought to become' (Lingard, 2018). This aligns with their rationale, articulated in the national narrative and aspirational goals of the Melbourne Declaration of Educational Goals for Young Australians (Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs [MCEETYA], 2008). With the release of the latest iteration, the Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration (Council of Australian Governments Education Council [COAGEC], 2019), it is timely to revisit the rationale and application of the CCPs.
