The Geelong College Early Learning Centre

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

Based on statements shared by our staff at the beginning of our reconciliation journey, our vision for reconciliation is to actively promote an understanding that reconciliation means:

• valuing and learning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures • acknowledgement, awareness and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples • understanding that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the wider Australian community can exist as one - a sense of unity in diversity • having confidence to be advocates for social justice, and doing what is right  • building a bridge - making connections, stepping towards a stronger relationship between non-Indigenous Australians and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples • being global citizens

We envision a reconciled Australia that is free from judgemental attitudes and actions and that is founded on unity, equality and equity for all.

We are committed to continuing to use our Learning project to help to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander understandings into our everyday programs in an authentic, meaningful and ongoing way for our children, the wider school, our parents and families.
