Goodstart Underdale


Goodstart Underdale’s vision for reconciliation is one that actively acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Custodians of Lands across Australia. We hope to strengthen ties and meaningful connections with the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community in a respectful and valued manner. We as a team and as individual educators are committed to an ongoing learning journey in developing understanding regarding Australia's true histories and commit to gaining a greater level of understanding about reconciliation and how we can move forward to establish equal and equitable representation and integrated learning.

We are dedicated to overcoming fears of 'tokenism', building confidence and seeking opportunities to further our thinking about how we can lead change towards reconciliation and courteously embed cultural elements into our pedagogy and practice. In turn, for our children we aim to organically and respectfully educate them about the cultures, histories and languages of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and ensure all children are provided with the equal and equality education opportunities.
