Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in schools and early learning in practice
Are you one of the many schools and Early Years services that are interested in preparing a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)?
This session is perfect for you if you have recently embarked on your Reconciliation journey and are looking for support and advice, or you have completed your RAP and would be keen to share ideas and inspiration with other educators.
We look forward to meeting you for an exciting morning reflecting, exploring and inspiring you in your Reconciliation journey!
Reconciliation SA has partnered with Reconciliation Australia to support schools and early learning services in SA to take action toward reconciliation in the classroom, around the school and with the community. Reconciliation Australia’s Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Education program supports all schools and early learning services in Australia to foster a high level of knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions. The Narragunnawali online platform is free to access and provides practical ways to introduce meaningful reconciliation initiatives in the classroom, around the school and with the community. Through the Narragunnawali platform, schools and early learning services can develop a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), and teachers and educators can access professional learning and curriculum resources to support the implementation of reconciliation initiatives.
