Education services are playing a critical role in promoting reconciliation across Australia.
Our vision for reconciliation in education is to see children, staff and surrounding educational communities engaged in learning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples cultures, histories and contributions. Such learning is key to enhancing relationships and bringing about a better future for all.
Support for Schools and Early Learning Services
Reconciliation Queensland has partnered with Reconciliation Australia’s Narragunnawali Program to support schools and early learning services in Queensland to take action toward reconciliation in the classroom, around the school and with the community.
Reconciliation Queensland offers on-site visits, presentations, webinars and workshops to schools and early learning services. To support teachers and educators in providing meaningful reconciliation experiences to children and students. They also provide local information, introduce you to professional learning and curriculum resources and the Reconciliation Action Plan process, to support a whole-school or service commitment to reconciliation.
