Wikimedia Australia is looking to undertake projects with relation to Australian schools and education systems, of varying scopes. This will probably come under a future "Education Workgroup" for the purposes of collaboration and coordination, although it should be noted not all are aimed at the same levels of education, nor do each have the same purpose in mind.

During the recent Chapters meeting in Berlin, our representatives became aware of a number of successful projects overseas and Andrew Owens, who attended the international Education Workgroup, will be looking to bring over and host on this website any CC-by-SA material they have produced which may be of use to us (accommodating for different systems).

Some members have expressed the view we should not be dealing with schools/institutions but with education systems, so this project also allows for Wikimedia Australia to work with or consult to the Education Departments in various states and/or other more widely representative bodies in order to gain systemic reach.
