About us

About Us

The History Teachers' Association of NSW was formed in 1954, with the simple aim of providing a means for teachers to 'meet and discuss the teaching of History and issues connected with our teaching of History'. Its membership grew quickly, as did the range of activities it engaged in. 

As a result, today's association is a much more complex organisation than the one established in 1954. Nevertheless, HTA NSW retains the strong collegial identity given to it by its founders and remains dedicated to supporting the interests of the discipline of History, its teachers and their students.
