Aboriginal Cultural Rights and School Bus Travel

The Victorian Charter of Human Rights section 19(2) explains Aboriginal cultural rights here, https://www.humanrights.vic.gov.au/resources/aboriginal-cultural-rights/

This says Aboriginal people hold distinct cultural rights and must not be denied the right to:

  • enjoy their identity and culture;
  • maintain and use their language;
  • maintain their kinship ties; and
  • maintain their distinctive spiritual, material and economic relationship with the land and waters and other resources with which they have a connection under traditional laws and customs.

None of this creates any issues with transport on a school bus. Children are welcome to enjoy their identity, culture and language while complying with safe travel requirements.
