RAP Budget Allocation

183 schools and early learning services have added this Action to their RAP.

Setting aside dedicated funds for your RAP within your budget gives your school or early learning service the opportunity to procure goods and services that can strengthen the sustainability of your RAP Actions. It is important to consider remuneration for external people and organisations invited to contribute time and resources to RAP initiatives in your school or early learning service.

While implementing a successful RAP in your  [SCHOOL_TYPE] can be done without a dedicated budget, committing even a small budget to RAP initiatives can strengthen the implementation and sustainability of RAP Actions.

Expenditure required to undertake some RAP initiatives might not necessarily be obvious during the early stages of your RAP planning. Examples of budget items you should consider include:

• coordinating a Welcome to Country;

• effective professional learning for staff;

• teacher relief;

• paying guest speakers;

• cultural excursions and other learning opportunities for students;

• attending events;

• materials required for projects;

• purchasing curriculum resources (books, films etc.);

• purchasing flags; and 

• commissioning art works. 

Schools and early learning services must be mindful about appropriately remunerating people for the time and resources they have contributed towards implementing RAP Actions. While goodwill is important, relying on this alone can often be problematic in implementing whole school or early learning service change.
