VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

 The Jack and Jill Kindergarten’s vision for reconciliation is to respectfully embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s histories, cultures, and perspectives into our everyday practices. By doing this in a respectful and meaningful way, we aim to educate the children, families, and staff to deepen our collective understanding of the rich cultures and contributions of Australia’s First Nations Peoples.  We seek to build meaningful connections with members of the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and acknowledge that the Darug and Guringai people have been, and continue to be, the Custodians of the Land in the Hornsby area for many thousands of years.  Our children already have a natural curiosity about the world and understand we need to protect it – we endeavour to deepen this connection by learning from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and perspectives about caring for the Land. The Jack and Jill Kindergarten’s vision is to create an environment where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and all members of our Kindergarten community, feel welcome, safe, and supported and where we all live and learn together.
