VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

Our vision for reconciliation is an Australia that unites and celebrates all people and their cultures, respecting and understanding the diverse history of Australia and embedding local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ cultures, heritage and traditions within our daily program and routines. We strive to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the Lands on which we walk by promoting equitable and equal opportunities within our service, through language, career paths, professional development training and ongoing learning.  We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ deep connections with the land, waters, and communities, embedding teachings of respect and sustainably for the Land and connections with the community upon which our service stands.  We acknowledge that the Reconciliation Action Plan, is an ongoing process that requires constant reflection and development as an individual, team and organisation. Through reflective practice, we strive for continuous improvement for understanding and promoting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage, cultures, and community. Our commitment intertwines with our values for diversity, respect, justice, honesty, compassion, courage, and the rights of the child. It is our goal that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander teachings and heritage are embedded respectfully, and that their values are deeply intertwined with our own as we become one healed nation, so that in our future it is entrenched in our being, belonging, and becoming. We, at Eden Academy Bardon welcome all people, in support of sustainable and meaningful reconciliation as we remain committed to maintaining and developing reciprocal and respectful relationships between the Traditional Custodians of the Land and other Australians. By establishing a greater understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures we are able to develop an appreciation of Australia’s cultural heritage and move towards the healing and unity of our nation.
