Reconciliation

At Nazareth, we are committed to taking meaningful action to advance reconciliation.

Our Vision for Reconciliation

Nazareth Catholic Community acknowledges and recognises the cultural and spiritual values of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, families, staff, and community members, as an integral part of our College Community. We are committed to ensuring that, as a school and community, we acknowledge our part in the journey of reconciliation and prepare young people for continuing this throughout their own lives.

As a College Community we acknowledge the wrongs of the past and pray there is truth, justice, healing, and historical acceptance. Our vision for reconciliation is inspired by our Catholic ethos as we celebrate interconnectedness, ensuring equity, unity, empathy, and acknowledgement of the past, embodying respect for the dignity of each person in our care. We aim to build a sense of belonging amongst First Nations children and families through the implementation of our committed RAP actions. We look to celebrate and recognise First Nations children and families, as well as working toward deep listening and understanding of their experiences and wisdom.

Our College Community will prioritise actions that support ‘Closing the Gap’ in education, as well as caring for, and making space for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ individual and collective rights and cultures. As a large organisation that works with young people, it is our responsibility to create a range of opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians as they become proud, confident, and resilient young people.

Our hope is that students are empowered to be people of justice and commit to making the world a better place, by fully embracing all that is required to bring about a reconciled Australia. We will continue to learn and grow in the actions we take towards reconciliation and understand more deeply the need for change.

We remember and acknowledge the mistreatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

May 26 is National Sorry Day.

We join with people all over Australia to acknowledge the mistreatment of First Nations peoples who were forcibly removed from their families and communities.

Saying sorry is important, of course, but we match our words with actions. Sorry is also our promise: to fight racism wherever it lurks, and to stay committed to the ongoing journey of reconciliation.

The National Reconciliation Week theme for 2024, Now More Than Ever, is a reminder to all of us that no matter what, the fight for justice and the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will —and must —continue.

God created ALL people in His image. May He lead us to seek compassion as we listen to the stories of the violence in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, and as we work towards healing and creating a future that is just and equitable.

Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge that Nazareth is on sacred Kaurna land, next to Karrawirraparri, the River Torrens. We pay our respects to the Kaurna People, whose cultures and customs have nurtured this Land for thousands of years. We honour the presence of Kaurna Ancestors, whose spirits live among our environments. We pay our respects to all Elders, earthside and beyond, and extend our respect to all First Nation Peoples. We acknowledge that wherever we stand, we are on unceded Aboriginal Land. Always was, always will be.

Narragunnawali Reconciliation Action Plan

Narragunnawali (pronounced narra-gunna-wally) is a word from the language of the Ngunnawal people that means alive, wellbeing, coming together and peace. The Nazareth Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) has been developed through Reconciliation Australia’s Narragunnawali program, and is a formal statement of commitment to promoting reconciliation between our community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The RAP demonstrates our commitment to making positive change through forward-thinking about reconciliation.
