Steps toward reconciliation
In this episode of Illumine: For Parents, we discuss the School’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), with Ms Sophie Mynott, Deputy Principal (Co-curriculum), who has a passion for engaging with First Nations peoples and communities, as well as previous experience in developing RAPs.
Ms Mynott said ‘in this country we have the oldest continuing civilisation in the world, and that’s something really unique that I think we should celebrate… that’s the one thing that is truly Australian.
‘First Nations people have so much to teach us about caring for this country, adapting to changing conditions and climate—so much wisdom that we’re at risk of losing if we don’t start valuing it.’
Listen to Principal, Ms Jacinda Euler Welsh’s, discussion with Ms Mynott about opportunities for action, learning and developing relationships with First Nations people, which characterise the School’s RAP.
