Reconciliation in Education

Reconciliation Victoria believes educating students about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures, and Australia's true history, is fundamental to achieving long-term change and meaningful reconciliation.  

Reconciliation Victoria works with Reconciliation Australia's Narragunnawali team and other key education stakeholders to more deeply understand the Victorian education sectors needs in the reconciliation space.  

We work to identify insights our organisations can offer to support Victorian schools and early learning services, in furthering their understanding and approach to reconciliation.

Our Work with Schools and Early Learning Centres

Reconciliation Victoria’s work in education is aligned to the Victorian Government’s Marrung Aboriginal Education Plan, working with key stakeholders towards ensuring the entire school community understands and respects Koorie culture, history, knowledge and contributions.

This project will focus on supporting teachers and educators to drive this cultural change in their schools/centres.

This project has two streams:  

  • Promoting the Narragunnawali online resource for schools and early learning services to support reconciliation.
  • Establishing Reconciliation Victoria’s work supporting reconciliation in schools and early learning services based on local needs.

Narragunnawali Australia

Reconciliation Australia's Narragunnawali (pronounced narra-gunna-wally) is a national program that provides free curriculum resources that are accessible for everyone.

Reconciliation Victoria has partnered with Reconciliation Australia's Narragunnawali team to support schools and early learning services in Victoria to take meaningful action towards reconciliation in the classroom, around the school and with the community.

Narragunnawali provides practical ways of introducing and strengthening knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions in Australian schools and early learning services.

Reconciliation Action Plans

A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a formal commitment to reconciliation. It documents how your school or early learning service will strengthen relationships, respect and opportunities in the classroom, around the school/service and with the community.

Schools and early learning services can develop a RAP using the Narragunnawali platform to register and extend on existing initiatives, or to begin their reconciliation journeys. See the film and resources via Narragunnawali to learn more about developing a RAP.
