Cultural Integrity at Franklin School

The Franklin Cultural Integrity Committee, made up of teachers across the school, overseas the embedding of cultural activities, incursions, and teaching at Franklin School.

Franklin School is committed to an authentic and embedded program of cultural activities and events through many things including a strong relationship with Ngunnawal woman Aunty Josie, regular opportunities for staff training through the Education Directorate, sharing of information and activities at staff meetings, planning and teaching, the recognition and celebration of events such as NAIDOC Week and Reconciliation Day as well as regular incursions.

At Franklin we build upon our Reconciliation Action Plan on a yearly basis to set new goals and continue with the actions we have already put in place. Some of our achievements include our Reconciliation Garden and mural planned and designed alongside Aunty Josie, Whole School walks to Gubur Dhaura with Aunty Josie to acknowledge Reconciliation and NAIDOC and regular incursions from groups such as Duncan Smith and the Wiradjuri Echoes to share culture and knowledge with our students and staff.

Franklin School regularly takes feedback on all of these aspects of Cultural Integrity to ensure that we are building upon what are achieving and continuing to provide an authentic and meaningful cultural Integrity program for our students and community.
