Reconciliation in Education

Free Online Workshops for Educators

Reconciliation NSW has developed a new program to highlight the importance of Reconciliation in Education. We offer online workshops, access to lesson plans and activities and a downloadable reconciliation in education kit for educators to begin to access tools and resources.

Nominate your school or ELS for a free online workshop which includes professional development, cultural competence,  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 run a professional development session or student based workshop online 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.
