KU Wombarra Preschool

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

 

Reconciliation is a feeling - one that we get when we come with open hearts, to listen and share our stories, without judgement or fear. Within the telling and being heard, we find a connection to each other and a sense of becoming whole, being accepted and belonging.

Reconciliation acknowledges the deep hurt of the past and is being prepared to move forward in relationships with each other, listening and learning from each other’s stories.

We recognise that children, on their journey through childhood, should develop an understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, identities, cultures and rights, appropriate to their ages and stages.

Educators have a role in respectfully learning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories and cultures, recognising their achievements, knowledge’s and spiritual connections to place. Our role is to provide a culturally safe environment and a genuine commitment towards respect, support, development and self-determination of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, their families and community.

We hope to provide opportunities for the local Aboriginal Traditional Owners and our preschool’s Aboriginal families and community members to share their experiences, histories and cultures through their own voices, and in turn, give our educators, children and families the opportunity to learn together.
