Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)
Acknowledgement of Country
Gleeson College recognises the rich cultural heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and respects their ongoing deep connection with the land. We acknowledge and respect the Kaurna people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our college is situated. We strive to build our knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and work together, With One Heart, to achieve a future characterised by unity and respect, with equality and justice for all Australians.
Our Vision for Reconciliation
Our Vision for Reconciliation begins with our acknowledgement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the original custodians of our beautiful land, Australia.
Gleeson College is a Co-Educational Catholic Secondary College (Year 7-12), which sits on Kaurna land in Golden Grove, northeast of Adelaide. We are a faith-filled community who aspire to a reconciled Australia where everyone is treated with dignity and respect, and given equal and equitable opportunities to achieve success.
With One Heart, we proudly recognise and celebrate First Nations' heritage and cultures, and are committed to work in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to increase knowledge and awareness, reduce prejudice and strengthen unity.
We are life-long learners, who are passionate about the need to engage in vibrant learning experiences, which deepen our understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and our shared history, grounded in truth. We aspire to the healing of our national soul and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures to be fully valued, with broken relationships restored and social inequalities eraticated.
