Reconciliation

 

Gowrie SA is now on our third Reconciliation Action Plan (2016-2020). We have learned from our past plans and we are committed to actively support the economic advancement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We are focused on improving educational outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and supporting their parents.

We endorse the statement from the National Apology for “a future based on mutual respect, mutual resolve and mutual responsibility” (2008).

 

Our vision for reconciliation

We recognise and value the work and teachings of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their communities across Australia.

Gowrie SA believes in raising awareness and knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture and that through on-going learning and education we will deepen our connections with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Through working together and including children from a young age we can collectively build our understanding for a better future based on stronger relationships between all Australians.

As an organisation we are committed to raising awareness about reconciliation, demonstrating this commitment and raising the profile of reconciliation in our community.

We need to develop an understanding of and reflect on the injustices that continue to impact our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Gowrie SA has the ability to incorporate this vision into all areas of our organisation with the intention that this will empower others to embrace reconciliation.
