Since 2006, Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs) have enabled organisations to sustainably and strategically take meaningful action to advance reconciliation. Based around the core pillars relationships, respect and opportunities, RAPs provide tangible and substantive benefits for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, increasing economic equity and supporting First Nations self-determination.Reconciliation Australia, 2021
At MOCCA we honour Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, cultures and perspectives. We believe that by acknowledging Country, and respectfully embedding First Nations perspectives in our everyday curriculums and centre operations, we will empower our MOCCA community to emerge as proud allies and fierce advocates for First Nations people.
We will add our voice in support of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s rights to true self determination. We will work collaboratively with our local community to ensure continued understanding and mutually respectful relationships. Our educators will be provided with meaningful professional learning opportunities to strengthen cultural integrity. At MOCCA, reconciliation is everyone’s responsibility, for the benefit of our whole community, “you, me, us”.
Our RAP Working Group consists of staff, families and community members. As the year comes to a close we say goodbye to some of our families as their children transition to new school settings.
We warmly invite interested families and friends of MOCCA to submit an expression of interest to join our RAP Working Group for 2022. For further information please email the Director, Rowena Muir via firstname.lastname@example.org
