Reconciliation at Yule Brook College is all about our focus to raise the bar, close the gap and create equal and equitable opportunities for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, as well as opportunities for all members of our college community to learn about and act towards reconciliation. Our community is a close knit mix of a wide array of cultures who for the most part live and work together harmoniously. The college will continue to focus on a well-rounded education for all students incorporating sports, the arts, academic achievement and intracultural and intercultural respectful relationships. Our approach of 'one student at a time' is the foundation of our vision. Accordingly, the college provides equal and equitable educational opportunities to all students and appreciates, respects and values the extraordinary positions of the local Noongar peoples and their contributions to and traditions in our community.
We also acknowledge and respect all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures in the communities of which our students and families are connected, and acknowledge that the First Australians have continued to be connected to Lands across Australia for 65 000+ years. We will work towards reconciliation through:
- understanding and celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories and cultures.
- Respectfully including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in learning (curriculum and teaching practice).
- supporting active involvement by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families in school activities.
- engaging all students in high quality programs focused on learning about, and demonstrating respect for, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives
- providing equal and equitable opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to shine and proudly share their heritage with the wider school and community.
