We would like to begin by acknowledging the traditional owners of the land where we live, learn and play - the students. The histories, cultures, knowledge systems and languages of Australia’s first people have an essential place in our learning.
An active partnership with the local Indigenous community lets Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students see their personal stories and experiences reflected in learning situations. Personal connection to learning materials meets identified learning needs and supports students to reach their life goals.
We welcome the involvement of members in the school community who identify as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander. Your contribution plays a valuable part in building cultural identity and enriches community connections.
The ACT Education Directorate has identified four focus areas for successfully building Cultural Integrity:
- Engagement with families and community;
- Teaching with Cultural Integrity;
- Leadership, celebration and environment; and
- High expectations and successful transitions.
