Culture is the characteristics and knowledge of a group of people which can include behaviours, beliefs, values, attitudes and perspectives. . Culture is learned and shared, often passed along by communication and imitation from one generation to the next.
Culture is a fundamental building block of identity and the development of a strong cultural identity is essential to a child’s healthy sense of who they are and where they belong.
