A reconciled Australia would be a fair, just, united and inclusive, without bias. A reconciled Australia would feel like a bridge was made linking the painful and sad past to a new land where we all acknowledge and respect the true Australian history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ cultures, histories and traditions.
If you look up the word "RECONCILIATION" in the dictionary, the definition is "a situation in which two people or groups of people become friendly again after they have argued".
In 2008 the Government delivered an Apology in to the Stolen Generation, but there is still a long way until we have a reconciled Australia, living with a shared sense of national unity.
As we continue to be lifelong learners, we are committed to building our knowledge and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures and contributions.
Based on our reconciliation journey and learnings thus far, our next most powerful steps will involve commitment to further develop our understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives and share this knowledge with our children and their families in a respectful, inclusive and meaningful way. And we would love to create opportunities to engage with the local community to achieve this goal.
