Reconciliation in Education

Reconciliation NSW has partnered with Reconciliation Australia’s Narragunnawali program to deliver workshops and facilitate reconciliation in NSW schools and early learning services.

If you are an educator in the City of Sydney Council or Inner West Council area you can book into one of our free Reconciliation in Education Workshops. Registrations are through Eventbrite.

February 18 Redfern Community Centre 4 – 6 pm

February 25 Marrickville Library 4 – 6 pm

These workshops will also introduce our Caring for Country program.

Nominate your school for a free workshop which includes professional development, cultural competence  and understanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives in the classroom, reconciliation themes and how to activate your school to engage with Reconciliation Action Plans.

If your school or AECG team would like Reconciliation NSW to come to you and run a professional development session or student based workshop please contact us.

About Narragunnawali

Reconciliation Australia’s Narragunnawali program supports all schools and early learning services in Australia to foster a high level of knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions. Narragunnawali’s online platform is free to access and provides practical ways to introduce meaningful reconciliation initiatives in the classroom, around the school and with the community. Through the Narragunnawali platform, schools and early learning services can develop a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), and teachers and educators can access professional leaning and curriculum resources to support the implementation of reconciliation initiatives.
