At Woy Woy Public School, we are committed to building a culture of belonging and providing a safe environment where all people, children, and adults are challenged and supported to achieve their personal best. Our commitment to reconciliation is guided by our school's Strategic Improvement Plan and the three key themes of reconciliation: Relationships, Respect, and Opportunities. By making this commitment, we aim to create a place of teaching and learning that is culturally inclusive, where aspirations are fostered, diversity is acknowledged and genuine conversations about closing the gap of equity and equality between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples.
We honour the Traditional Custodians of Country and seek to understand the complete story of our histories through listening and learning together. We choose compassion and curiosity as we focus on the strengths and diversities of our cultures. We value systems that aim to create connections and be a catalyst for change. We look forward to a future of unity, equal opportunity, and respect for all people whilst still maintaining cultural identities. We honour the strong connections we have with our community and standing shoulder to shoulder with them we aim to promote and facilitate respect, trust, and positive relationships between the wider community and First Nations Peoples.
As we move into the future, Woy Woy Public School will ensure that our Reconciliation Action Plan is valued, embraced, and celebrated by our community in accordance with our vision for reconciliation.
