We are developing a RAP to formalise our commitment to reconciliation and improve educational opportunities and cultural connectedness to the histories and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
We would like the children who attend Bright Buttons to gain an understanding of Australia’s cultural heritage and to learn to respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. To underpin our profiling of the need for continued action around reconciliation and our commitment, as early educators and young learners, to improving our community's understanding of reconciliation.
The centre will respectfully embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives within our teaching and learning experiences. Each year we build on our knowledge as a centre and endeavour to share that knowledge and understanding to the children.
The RAP is championed by management, Director and staff.
