Christie Downs Primary School

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

Our school community acknowledges and respects the histories, cultures and contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Moreover, the school seeks to develop in students, staff and the community a sense of pride in the achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, both past and present. We are committed to ensuring that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures are acknowledged as an important part of Australia’s heritage and shared national identity.

We aim to develop understanding through a variety of genuine learning opportunities embedded within the school curricula which are further enhanced on special occasions such as NAIDOC Week.

School staff will continue to strive for excellence in creating a rich, culturally-sensitive learning environment for all students through the five dimensions of reconciliation. 

We recognise that the Land on which our school stands is the Land of the Kaurna People and we pay due respect at every available opportunity. The school also seeks to celebrate the achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples within our local community. We aim for a healthy relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous communities based on trust and respect as well as freedom from racism.

Integral to the school’s vision for reconciliation is a recognition of the importance of equality and equity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across all sections of society.
