LHC Reconciliation Action Plan: Educating to make a difference - 21 October 2014

On Friday 10 October, Senior National Schools Officer, Susanne Bowles, of Reconciliation Australia, was welcomed to Lourdes Hill by Belinda McGleenon and Sonja Carmichael of the Faculty of Differentiated Learning.

The purpose of the visit was to participate in further discussions of best practice towards the completion of a Teachers’ Resource Kit for High Schools. The Lourdes Hill College response to Embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Perspectives (EATSIP) is in tune with the current priority focus for Reconciliation Australia.

Susanne acknowledged Reconciliation Captain, Lucy McKenna, as a valuable and informative contributor to the discussion at the time.  Also involved in the discussion was the College’s Elder in Residence, Aunty Joan Hendriks.

Education is a key to Reconciliation and the first step is to focus on “Why Reconciliation”. Reconciliation is a journey that relies on understanding that Australia still today has a hidden history that must be told.  Only then will there be understanding and acceptance towards building respectful relationships. 

Together we are making a difference.
