Only About Children Surry Hills


Our vision is to provide leadership to others in supporting relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous people that are respectful, welcoming and inclusive.

OAC Surry Hills’ vision for reconciliation is based on the core principles of community and collaboration, which underpin the work we do every day in supporting children’s education.

Our Campus has led us to question and challenge what we do every day to ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are actively recognised and appreciated in meaningful ways.

As the Traditional Owners and Custodians of Lands across Australia, the Torres Strait Islands and the surrounding waters, we have so much to learn from First Peoples, as we strive for more ethical, interconnected and inclusive communities.

We recognise that unless OAC Surry Hills is committed to reconciliation through adopting a practical action plan, the small and significant changes necessary to shift from positions of racism, ignorance, and tokenism will not be achieved. We believe that our Reconciliation Action Plan will provide practical strategies for building and renewing deeper partnerships and engagement with Aboriginal communities, organisations, families and individuals so that we can learn from each other as we work to build a more equitable and socially just nation.
