Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Schools and Early Learning is designed to support the 21,000+ early learning services, primary and secondary schools in Australia to develop environments that foster a higher level of knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contributions.
Participating schools and early learning services will be assisted to find meaningful ways to increase respect; reduce prejudice; and strengthen relationships between the wider Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Narragunnawali (pronounced narra-gunna-wally) is a word from the language of the Ngunnawal people meaning alive, wellbeing, coming together and peace.
The Ngunnawal people are Traditional Owners and Custodians of the land and waterways on which Reconciliation Australia’s Canberra ofﬁce is located.
Narragunnawali News contains information about reconciliation in Australia, ideas for driving reconciliation in schools and early learning services, and highlights of great things happening in schools and early learning services across the country.
School and early learning service Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs) provide school and early learning working groups with a whole school framework to implement positive and meaningful action in the classroom, around the school or early learning service and with the community.
Our collection of resources are a great starting point for teachers and educators wanting to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures in the classroom.
Narragunnawali is currently developing online professional learning resources for teachers and educators to develop and implement reconciliation actions in schools and early learning services.
