Woodridge State School

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

At Woodridge State School we continue to build a school culture where there is a sense of belonging and respect for cultural identities.  As a large multicultural school we understand the value of unity in building strong communities. We will continue to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives through all Learning Areas and promote the importance of learning about Australia’s true history and how it affected First Nations Peoples.

We adopt pedagogical practices that enable all students, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, to embrace their cultural identity, unique strengths, their connection to Lands, languages and cultures.

We acknowledge that parents, caregivers, Elders and community participation is a vital component to the educational success of all students. We build reciprocal relationships and engagement with families based on mutual trust and respect in supporting studentsto achieve quality learning outcomes.

We continue to actively seek opportunities to further promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, histories and knowledge on a continuing basis supported by the whole Woodridge State School community.

Woodridge State School has four very important elements that define the Code of Conduct for all members of the school community. These are reflected in our school rules I am safe, I am respectful, I am caring, I am a learner.  Our vision is "Together, as Global Citizens - Providing Opportunities - Creating Future", in creating an inclusive learning environment to support learners for the 21st Century.
