Journey to reconciliation

Kath Dickson Family Centre is committed to creating opportunities that promote, strengthen and enrich the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, in particularly to facilitate active participation and engagement in their children's educational journey.

We are honoured to acknowledge our Elders, past, present and emerging. They have walked this land with us, and before us; today, yesterday and generations long ago. They have lived lives of courage, strength and determination. We recognise their legacy, that each of us now carries. We recognise the path that their footsteps have carved for us. We acknowledge the trust that has been placed in us to continue this journey. We do all of this with respect, reverance and understanding.

Vision for reconciliation

A reconciled Australia is unified, respectful, resilient and meaningful. We at Kath Dickson Family Centre hope to see a country that sees Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultures as valued and recognised as integral in our shared national identity. 

Our vision for reconciliation, we hope, will enable us to champion quality outcomes in early childhood education and care, with our ability to help influence and guide the future generations, one child at a time. We will continue to help all Australians develop a strong sense of identity and pride in their cultures.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Kath Dickson Family Centre's first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) was officially published in July 2018.
