VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

Overnewton College is a Community of Learners that is understanding, respectful and actively supportive of

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, customs and heritages, and values justice and equity for all Australians.

Overnewton College will achieve its vision for reconciliation by:

  •  Providing a safe and welcoming place for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
  •  Enabling College students and staff to understand fully and accept both the histories of  Aboriginal

    and Torres Strait Islander people and the impact of European settlement, actions and policies.

  •   Recognising and the diversity and unique attributes of the different Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Nations, their customs

    and languages.

  •  Developing an ongoing and sustainable annual calendar of key events that acknowledge and 

    respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritages and valuing justice and equity for all Australians.

  •   Developing ongoing and mutually beneficial relationships with Aboriginal communities.

  •  Developing and maintaining a historical record of Aboriginal activity and its evidence on the Land on

    which the Yirramboi and Canowindra campuses stand.
