Pedare’s Commitment to Reconciliation

Mr Mike Millard


Mr Mike Millard

I am very pleased, that in the coming months, Pedare will complete a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). The plan will embody Pedare’s commitment to recognising the special place and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples within Australia.

Pedare has a vision to educate our non-Indigenous population to understand, through the curriculum, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, create empathy and find solutions for the future. We want Pedare students to understand that practical measures are needed to address the disadvantage experienced by Indigenous Australian peoples in health, employment, and education. We want Pedare students to have an understanding of positive and purposeful partnerships that can make the world a better place.

Ms Monica Williams, from Association of Independent Schools (AISSA), is assisting the RAP team, which is made up of Pedare parents, students and teachers. RAP will be a living document which builds and fosters relationships and meets our vision for reconciliation and community harmony.
