Our Lady of Good Counsel, through our Mercy Charism is committed to valuing, respecting, and embracing cultural diversity, by respectfully recognising and embracing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives within and across all areas of our school. Our school motto calls us to embrace the richness of our history, challenges us to learn in the present and inspires us to help create a promising future through our values of Love, Service and Joy. We will strive to do this by building respectful and equitable partnerships within our school and local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, creating a sense of belonging and strong connection for all.
As we journey together in reconciliation, we will engage the hearts and minds of students, supporting and nurturing them whilst strengthening, celebrating and respectfully embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples’ perspectives, histories, cultures and contributions.
