Reconcilliation Strategy

St John Paul II Catholic Primary School acknowledges that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples were the first inhabitants of Australia. Their cultures are as diverse as the land they belong to.

We recognise that there is a real need to reconcile with the aboriginal people. Reconciliation is a very important process recognising cultural traditions and values. It promotes the principles of inclusion, equity and justice. Therefore as members of our community the Aboriginal people have the right to expect all followers of Jesus Christ as witnesses to the truth of the Gospel message to support them in their legitimate efforts towards development as a people seeking equity of dignity and opportunity in Australia.
