Wesley College

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

Wesley College’s vision for reconciliation  is to celebrate our community and share responsibility for reconciliation. We are committed to deeply connecting with and learning about the cultures, languages, practices and stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and their families.

We are committed to becoming a shining light for reconciliation in Australia. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples walk in two worlds and their cultures are a gift, connected to  Country, and  benefitting all members of the community.

Wesley College is located on Whadjuk Noongar Country and, through respectful truth telling processes, we recognise the impact of past histories since colonisation on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We celebrate the significant contributions Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have continued to make to our community, alongside their bravery and resilience. We believe in quality education that supports students to make meaningful transitions to life beyond the College, increasing their chances of realising their full potential, having a voice; and positively influencing their communities.

We will continue to value our Moorditj Mob program and other authentic experiences that develop a strong sense of belonging, cultural identity, pride and aspiration for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, ,and appreciate the potential programs such as this creates to deeply and respectfully connect our community to languages, cultures, practices and stories.

We place importance on the collaboration of non–Indigenous people in the reconciliation process as they adopt inclusive practices that ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a meaningful role to play in decisions that affect them.

We are optimistic of a time when equality and equity is actively fostered between non-Indigenous and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our community and when reconciliation is a lived reality and not simply an idea.
