Mumbulla School strives for truth-telling through actively acknowledging and respecting First Nations people's sovereignty, histories and cultures as the Traditional Custodians of Lands across the Australian continent which always were, and always will be, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Lands.
Our School's Mission states that we aim to prepare our students to go into the world to "...act in freedom, with intelligence, creativity and purpose in a changing world." Integral to this is Mission is our commitment to embedding all five dimensions of reconciliation, and the State of Reconciliation in Australia report’s call to moving ‘from safe to brave’, into our school's curriculum and wider ethos. We are committed to a curriculum that respectfully teaches about First Nations people’s identities, heritages, cultures and continuing contributions, and that meaningfully integrates a focus on the five dimensions of reconciliation:
•Race relations •Equality and equity •Institutional Integrity •Unity •Historical Acceptance
We acknowledge the wrongs of past government policies and the pain and suffering this has caused, and continues to cause, First Nations people. We believe that reconciliation means working together to acknowledge past injustices with a commitment to shaping a unified future.
A reconciled Australia will be a place where the Uluru Statement from the Heart is accepted and acted upon by government. A reconciled Australia will be a place where First Nations people have a voice in government and where First Nations traditions, cultures and perspectives are respected, valued, and celebrated by all Australians.
At Mumbulla School we are committed to walking alongside First Nations people. We are committed to respectfully engaging with and learning from the Elders and emerging Djiranganj leaders. We are committed to caring for Country in accordance with the wisdom, principles and practices of the Djiringanj people, Traditional Custodians of the Land on which our school stands.
