Please contact us if you have any further questions.
What is a Vision for Reconciliation?
A Vision for Reconciliation is an aspirational statement that publicly articulates to the wider community what reconciliation means to your school or early learning service. You can also include what motivates your school or service’s commitment to reconciliation.
When writing your Vision for Reconciliation, there is also an option to include a statement in your RAP that acknowledges the Country your school or early learning service is located on, and that pays respect to Elders and Traditional Custodians past and present. To support the development of this statement, consider engaging with the information and resources on the Acknowledgement of Country RAP Action page. As the statement will appear in your printed RAP document, you are encouraged to write a whole-school/service Acknowledgement, and to reference the context of the statement’s development.
Who should write our school or early learning service's Vision for Reconciliation?
To support institutional integrity, you should collaboratively develop your Vision for Reconciliation statement with your RAP Working Group and wider learning community. However, only the Chair/s of your RAP Working Group can enter and edit your Vision statement within the Narragunnawali platform.
