At the Alexandra/Mooloolaba Community Kindergarten reconciliation means that we will strive for respect, understanding, mutual trust and the building of meaningful relationships with the local Gubbi Gubbi/ Kabi Kabi people as well as with the whole Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
We acknowledge the resilience shown by Australia's First Peoples in the face of discrimination.
We believe it is important that we educate our young people from an early age about the injustices that have taken place and continue to take place and how we can move forward in a positive and collaborative manner, so we can enhance attitudes of all Australians and strengthen relationships with the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community to create a more united community, reinforcing we can all contribute towards reconciliation.
We strive to provide a cultural safe learning environment through respectfully embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in our daily emergent curriculum, which includes planned as well as spontaneous activities within our child centred learning environment as well as celebrating significant dates on the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander calendar.
