VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

As educators we recognise, we have limited knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures. We believe it is our responsibility to actively work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as we endeavour to learn from them.  We believe we need to listen to their voices to ensure we act accordingly, in all of our interactions, discussions and practices.  We are committed to extending our own learning and thinking, enabling us to undertake a sensitive and respectful approach when we are ready to share what we have learned.

We are listening to the issues raised in the Black Lives Matter protests and understand that it is our responsibility to not cause further harm by teaching Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples cultural ways of being and denying Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanderright to self-determination, therefore we will tread carefully and work towards a long journey of learning and asking permission before we impose our dominant views.
