Narragunnawali RAPs in Schools: Creating a Better Future for all Young People through Reconciliation

1st March, 2021 @ 9:00 am


01/03/2021 - 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


This workshop is designed to support schools to create a better future for all young Australians through working in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to learn more about Australia’s rich histories and cultures. The session will provide insights and strategies relevant for schools at all stages of their engagement with a Narragunnawali RAP, including those schools:

  • considering a RAP and wanting to know more before beginning
  • in the process of drafting or implementing their first RAP
  • thinking about how to re-engage with a RAP after losing momentum
  • highly engaged schools in their second or third RAP
  • using RAPs as a vehicle for implementing authentic student agency

A significant number of our member schools have engaged in Narragunnawali RAPs since the launch in 2015. In many senses this is trailblazing work with each school community having their own unique set of opportunities and challenges.

This workshop is designed to bring together schools at various stages of their RAP journey to learn from each other. Schools new to the RAP implementation and schools who want to reinvigorate their RAP implementation will be able to hear how other schools have approached this, what has worked and what might have worked better. Schools which have been on the reconciliation journey for many years will be able to share significant turning points in their stories.

Workshop Outline

The workshop will be designed so that schools are provided with an opportunity to share:
