Our vision for reconciliation is to embraces unity between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the wider community and to have a national culture that represents equality and equity and historical acceptance of our shared history. Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
At Morayfield we strive for greatness, we intend to be a small part of a bigger picture, in the endeavour to educate children and families who attend our service, in helping them become more confident in creating respectful relationships between our community and the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
As educators, we recognise the crucial role we play in promoting and celebrating the rich histories, cultures and current achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander People. Our vision is to provide an educational program that promotes a deep and meaningful understanding of that past and how we can move forward in the future.
At Morayfield we intend to do this through.
- Engaging regularly in professional development training, to ensure that educators can respectfully engage in and educate on the cultural values of the Gubbi Gubbi People.
- Engage regularly with community bodies that promote the health and well-being of Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander families.
- Engage with members of the Gubbi Gubbi people, always having an open-door policy in our centre.
We acknowledge the RAP is a continual process and we will add to it and grow individually, as a team. Our vision mirrors our values of advocating the rights of children. It is our goal that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives are embedded respectfully and deeply that it is entrenched in our being, belonging and becoming.
