Reconciliation Action Plan:
A RAP demonstrates to the community that your school or early learning service is forward-thinking about reconciliation and committed to making positive change. Narragunnawali guides teachers, educators and community members through the development and implementation of a RAP. The process is flexible and can be tailored to meet the needs of the school or early learning services, and the local community.
Narragunnawali provides resources to promote reconciliation and to strengthen children and students’ knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders histories, cultures and contribution. The resources are aligned to the Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian Curriculum and can be used as is or adapted to suit the local context.
In the case of Tasmanian Education, The Orb is a collection of online multimedia resources designed to assist the teaching of Tasmanian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures in a local context. The Orb provides the teaching content while Narragunnawali provides the tools to teach this content.
Narragunnawali provides a wide range of professional learning resources for teachers and educators to support the implementation of reconciliation initiatives in the classroom, around the school and with the community. These resources assist teachers and educators to meet the National Quality Standard (early learning educators) and the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (primary and secondary school teachers).
