Our Vision    

Brunswick North West Learning Community believe that reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and all Australians is a journey of continuous collaborative learning to deepen our understanding of the First Peoples of Australia’s histories and cultures.

Brunswick North West Learning Community acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of Lands across Australia. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures as the oldest, continuous living cultures on the planet and that the Woi-wurring people are the Traditional Owners of the Country where our learning community is located. We celebrate the fact that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, lands and waters are central to  Australia’s national identity and we value First Peoples’ continued influence on Australian heritage.

 

As first steps in our journey, we recognise:

  • The impacts of colonisation on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ connections to families and communities, cultural identities and languages, Lands and waters.
  • That social and cultural dispossession since colonisation has caused  current  inequalities and inequities experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 
  • The ingenuity, spirit, resilience and continuing contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures. 

Our commitment to this journey includes:

  • Supporting students in understanding the true ‘Australian history;
  • Supporting students in their learning by respectfully incorporating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives;
  • Connecting students, families and educators/teachers with Country/place, and with the importance of caring for Country and its plants, animals, and people
