Tuggerah Out Of School Hours Care

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

Tuggerah Out Of School Hours Care (Tuggerah OOSHC) acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Custodians of Australia. Tuggerah OOSHC aims to provide a strong voice with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples past, present and future, thus ensuring the continuation of First Peoples' cultures. We take responsibility in educating and supporting children/young people to better understand and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' cultural ways, that have been passed down from generation to generation.

We also acknowledge the past and commit to working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to achieve:

“A united Australia which respects this land of ours; values the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage and provides justice and equity for all” (Vision of the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation).

We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians, with unique cultures, languages and spiritual relationships to the lands and seas. We are strongly committed to improving the lives of children and young people and to uphold the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children to be cared for, learn about and be proud of their own communities and remain connected to their families, communities and cultures.

At Tuggerah OOSHC we feel that reconciliation means working in a meaningful and respectful way with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and communities. Our vision for reconciliation is to nurture a community who will show respect, acceptance, tolerance and values all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures. We want to work closely with the school, parents, children and the local community to make this a reality throughout our centre in the future.
