Spotlight on reconciliation during Reconciliation Week

RAP_graphic.pngThis year Reconciliation Week took place from 27 May to 3 June but it is more than just a week. Reconciliation involves building positive, respectful relationships between the broader Australian Community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to the benefit of all Australians.

To create positive change, we need more people talking about the issues and getting involved. To help members, and their schools, contribute to reconciliation, we are working with Reconciliation Australia to present a workshop for schools to develop a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).  

Anyone within the school can be involved in the RAP development process, including students and non-teaching staff. Moving the RAP into action however, requires support from administration.  

If your school is committed to developing a RAP, then having one or two staff members attend our free IEUA-QNT-Reconciliation Australia Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Schools and Early Learning workshop at The Murri School from 9:00a.m. to 4:00pm on Thursday 16 July is a very cost and time effective way of translating good intentions into action.

Members are encouraged to talk to their administration as soon as possible and register for the workshop via our registration page.
