Close the Gap Day

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples have some of the poorest health outcomes of any group of people in the world.

National Close the Gap Day (NCTGD) is a national day of action to pledge support for achieving Indigenous health equality by 2030.

As part of our union’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), we have committed to marking Close the Gap Day by raising awareness among staff of the issues faced by First Nations people.

IEUA-QNT Chapters are encouraged to hold a morning tea on Thursday 19 March to acknowledge the day, consider the many complex issues involved and how we, as educators of this generation, can contribute to better outcomes for First Nations people given the critical roles childhood health education, physical activity and educational standards ultimately have on life expectancy.


Members are encouraged to share their events with their colleague members by emailing high-resolution photographs of Close the Gap events to communications@qieu.asn.au for inclusion in our union’s publications, social media and website.
