Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Schools and Early Learning

Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Schools and Early Learning

Reconciliation Australia’s Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Schools and Early Learning programme (Narragunnawali) supports schools and early learning services across Australia to develop environments that foster a higher level of knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions.

The Department of Education and Training is committed to reconciliation and is proud to support Narragunnawali. This commitment is outlined in the department’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2014-2017.

How can Narragunnawali help my school or early learning service to foster enhanced respect and reconciliation?

Participating schools and early learning services will be supported through:

  • resources, linked to the Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian Curriuclum, to assist teachers in better understanding and respecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, culutres and contributions
  • online professional learning for teachers and educators to support successful implementation of reconcilliation actions in schools and early learning services
  • a RAP development tool that provides schools and early learning services with a whole school framework to implement positive and meaningful reconciliation action.

What is a Reconciliation Action Plan?

A RAP is a formal statement of commitment to reconciliation. RAPs provides a framework to plan reconciliation activities in the classroom, around the school or early learning service and with the community.

For more information about what is involved in developing a RAP see the RAP page on the Reconciliation Australia website.

How can Narragunnawali assist me in developing a Reconcilation Action Plan?

An online RAP Developer has been developed to guide schools and early learning service through the process of developing a RAP.
