VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

At the core of our vision for reconciliation at BSPS is an active commitment for our school community to connect and build ongoing relationships with the local Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung community.

We will:

• Celebrate and respect Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung culture and other First Nations cultures, with permission

• Encourage our students, teachers and families to actively listen to and learn about the histories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the impacts of European settlement which continue to this day

• Encourage our school community to engage with current inequalities and inequities experienced by First Nations Peoples and the steps and actions we can take together to progress reconciliation.

We acknowledge that reconciliation will be an ongoing process in which we strive to have First Nations perspectives respectfully woven into the fabric of our school values and the education we provide for our students.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF COUNTRY

The Brunswick South Primary School community would like to acknowledge that we teach, learn and play on Land of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging. We would like to acknowledge the significant cultural and spiritual connection that the Wurundjeri people have had, and always will have, with this land. We strive to create a community of learners who understand the true histories of where we live and develop an appreciation for First Nation cultures, which continue to this day.
