Why educators should consider involvement in the development of a RAP
(Reconciliation Action Plan)
Nina Ross | Saturday 24th of June, 10.45am | Terrace Room
Facilitated by Reconciliation Australia's Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Education team, this session will explore the concept and context of reconciliation in Australia, the significant role of the education sector in driving a stronger future of reconciliation across the nation and what that means for educators and leaders.
While providing a walk through the features and functions of the Narragunnawali online platform, with a focus on the professional learning and curriculum resources available, the session will also highlight how building relationships, respect and opportunities within schools and early learning services can be meaningfully complemented by Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs) in schools and early learning services.
