It’s important to recognise students, children, staff and the community who contribute to reconciliation.
There are many reasons to do this, such as:
- building a sense of community and shared pride in achievements
- sharing examples of work toward reconciliation with community members
- recognising individuals for their commitment to reconciliation
- inspiring leadership and more action towards reconciliation.
Recognising commitment to reconciliation also highlights unity and respect between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians. Promoting unity and respect is essential to driving social and cultural change in your school or early learning service, and in the wider community.
