St Peter's Girls Early Learners Centre

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

At St Peter’s Girls’ Early Learners Centre, a friendly, caring Anglican community, we believe in the value of each individuals academic, spiritual, emotional, creative, physical and social development. We recognise and celebrate the cultural diversity of our country and believe that reconciliation will lead to a respect for the First Peoples, their Lands, cultures and spiritualties.

As a community of learners, we strive to build and strengthen relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; to learn about First Nations cultures; and to uphold the values of inclusivity, respect, care and cooperation.

We will contiually seek opportunities to increase respect, reduce prejudice and strengthen relationships between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Our community is enriched through the reciprocal sharing of skills and perspectives.

As an Early Learners Centre, we aim to develop global citizens who will: •    Make connections and develop pride •    Rejoice in differences •    Promote justice and respect   •    Understand and appreciate their own cultures and personal histories •    Embrace the values and traditions of other individuals and communities

Through our Reconciliation Action Plan, our children will create a better, more peaceful world based on intercultural understanding and shared humanity.

At the ELC we place a strong emphasis on ensuring that our children have knowledge of and respect for our shared Australian history. We acknowledge a continuing relationship with the Kaurna people, the Native Title Holders of the Land upon which our ELC stands. With the neighbouring Ferguson Conservation Park, we are able to physically explore the environment and develop our understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures in relevant and meaningful ways. We are dedicated to placing high importance on the inclusion of nature pedagogy in our curriculum, enabling seamless inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures into our everyday programming. We continually seek opportunities to increase respect, reduce prejudice and strengthen relationships between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
