A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a formal statement of commitment to reconciliation. A school or early learning service can develop a RAP using the Narragunnawali platform to register existing initiatives or to begin a new journey.

The key steps for developing a RAP are:

  • Establish a RAP Working Group: A diverse Working Group ensures the responsibility of implementing reconciliation initiatives does not sit with one person. 
  • Complete the Reflection Survey: To assist with planning, the Reflection Survey gives a snapshot of reconciliation in the school or early learning service.
  • Write a Vision for Reconciliation: A Vision clearly communicates the school or early learning service‚Äôs commitment to reconciliation to the community. 
  • Add RAP Actions: There are 39 RAP Actions to select from, including 14 that are a minimum requirement. 
  • Submit the RAP: RAPs are submitted to the Principal or Director for approval and to Reconciliation Australia for review.
The RAP framework below outlines the need to develop relationships, respect and opportunities in the classroom, around the school and with the community.
