How to Promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Reconciliation
Since 2009, the EREA Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Policy has guided and informed EREA in the development of initiatives, programs and goals for promoting Catholic schools in the Edmund Rice tradition as a genuine option for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families. In 2014, EREA released its Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Response following a full review of the previous policy
We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples of Australia as the traditional owners and custodians of the land of our schools. We are inspired and nurtured by their wisdom, spirituality and experience. We commit ourselves to actively
work alongside them for reconciliation and justice. We pay our respects to the Elders; past, present and future. As we take our next step we remember the first footsteps taken on this sacred land.
