Cultural Integrity


At Franklin Early Childhood School, we see a reconciled Australia as unified, accepting and harmonious. We see it as a place where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous people recognise that, in our diversity, all Australians have a shared history and a shared culture. We will continue to create a place where people of all cultures, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, families and community members, feel safe to learn and celebrate together so that we can move towards a strong and robust future of reconciliation. We are committed to fostering equal and equitable opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and influencing generational change through collaborative leadership. At Franklin, we recognise that we have a unique opportunity to impact upon reconciliation, particularly as many of our children and families have newly migrated to Australia and so have not necessarily grown up with pre-conceived attitudes or inter-generational, colonially biased prejudices about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We aspire to unite our community by continuing to break down any perceived ‘us’ and ‘them’ binaries between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous Australians. If we, as a school and community hub, model and teach the values of reconciliation, we can make the most of this opportunity. With historical acceptance and institutional integrity, we can move forward together in collaboration with our local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community to enhance cultural safety and well-being. Therefore, it is our goal to contribute to challenging systemic barriers and institutional inequalities or inequities. We are committed to engaging with students and families, all school staff, local community members and education networks and respecting the centrality that culture plays in our reconciliation journey. This engagement will support us to respectfully incorporate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives and knowledge in our classrooms, school and community. We therefore plan to take leadership, responsibility and accountability in implementing our Reconciliation Action Plan.
