VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures have survived tens of thousands of years by sharing stories, lessons and memories to educate the new generation.  

 

To the community of West Epping Preschool, a reconciled Australia is a country where all of its citizens are afforded the respect they deserve, are given a voice and platform from which to share knowledge and expertise towards the bettering of Country. A reconciled Australia would feel united under a common respect for Country where First Australians expert knowledge is considered and acted upon by all Australians. We have a large population of new Australians at our service and we see this as an opportunity for us to share the rich cultural teachings of the First Australians. Our vision is to create a culture within our preschool community that embraces the knowledge, beliefs, traditions and custodianship of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, which ios demonstrated in our everyday practice and through authentic partnerships with the Darug community.

 

We hope to be able to influence the perspective of not only our students but, our families to ensure that they are educated and regard Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with respect.
