We are excited to announce that Penrhos College has committed to developing a formal Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Our RAP aims to support our College community in developing an educational environment that fosters higher levels of knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions, for the benefit of our whole community.
Our action plan will be centred around our Core Shared Values of Synergy, Respect, Integrity, Growth, Knowledge and Empathy. Through our RAP, we will commit to strengthening relationships, respect and opportunities in the classroom, around the College and with the community.
Developing our RAP is a long-term commitment that will require ongoing consideration and collaborative effort. Within our community, there is unique knowledge and valuable experience that we would love to see reflected in the Actions that we commit to in our plan. Therefore, to ensure our RAP creates meaningful and sustainable change, we would like to seek your support.
This letter is a call to action for parents, carers, family and community members to express their interest in helping to drive our RAP development and implementation journey.
If you would like to be involved with the development and ongoing implementation of our action plan, including being part of the RAP Working Group, please complete the online expression of interest form. If you have any queries, please feel free to contact Jess O’Donnell at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further.
