A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a formal statement of commitment to reconciliation. Schools can develop a RAP using the Narragunnawali platform to register and extend on existing initiatives or to begin a new journey.

Once registered, schools will create a RAP working group and complete a Reflection Survey, which gives a snapshot of the current state of reconciliation in the school or early learning service. They will then be asked to write a Vision for Reconciliation, Acknowledgement of Country and choose a series of RAP Actions—practical commitments related to relationships, respect and opportunities.

A Draft RAP is then submitted to Reconciliation Australia who will review the RAP’s Vision for Reconciliation and Acknowledgement of Country statements prior to publication on the ‘Who has a RAP?’ map.

12 months after publication, the RAP will be reverted to draft to allow the RAP Working Group to ensure it remains a dynamic, living document. While all data from the previous version of the RAP will be retained, the refresh process involves, at minimum, re-completing the Reflection Survey and re-submitting the RAP.
