A VISION OF RECONCILIATION FOR ST. PATRICK'S
As a Catholic Christian community, St. Patrick’s Primary school fosters a culture where inclusion and diversity are acknowledged and celebrated.
We embrace our responsibility to recognise and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First peoples of Australia and their connection to country.
We inspire and develop our learners to commit to nurturing a spirit of equity, dignity, and respect for all.
We prioritise the dignity, safety, and well-being of each member of our community and we aim to foster collaborative partnerships with Gubbi Gubbi custodians and First Nations peoples.
We value and promote an understanding of reconciliation through words and actions in order to move forward together.
We embrace change by acknowledging the injustices of the past and we strive to journey toward reconciliation by walking with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and engaging in truth telling.
