Reconciliation Action Plan
Our school recognises and respects the First Peoples of this land. We believe teaching our students about reconciliation and our nation’s history can foster a higher level of knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island cultures and contributions. At St Joseph's Catholic School we see reconciliation as treating and being treated as equals, regardless of background and upbringing.
Australia is a multicultural society and we aim to embrace and treasure what each individual brings to our school. Our aim is to acknowledge and celebrate the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage of Australia through sharing and experiencing activities and events within our school and broader community.
A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a document that provides a framework for organisations to support the national reconciliation movement. For schools across the country, completing a RAP is done using this model.
