Immanuel College

VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

 

The Immanuel College community includes students and families from a broad range of cultural backgrounds. The College will continue to work at building relationships between these groups and in building a strong sense of community. Within this process we recognise the special place and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples within Australia. The College understands that practical measures are needed to address the inequalities and inequities experienced by Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population in health, employment and education, and acknowledges the strengths and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the face of these injustices. We recognise that both national and local solutions, developed in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, are required and that the College community can play a positive role in the process of advancing reconciliation through a range of positive actions and programs. The College is committed to an open dialogue within the Immanuel community to ensure that there is broad understanding of historical and contemporary injustices, as well as the continuing significance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions. In turn, we are committed to supporting an evolving level of enduring commitment to the generation of improved opportunities and outcomes for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and indeed the wider College community.  

Our vision is to achieve reconciliation by demonstrating respect to the special place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their Land, cultures, spirituality and traditions.

To achieve this vision our charter is to work within the College and with outside organisations to ensure that our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students have equal and equitable opportunities. In addition, the College will seek ways to encourage broader engagement with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and non-Indigenous school community.
