Community Consultation - Draft Reconciliation Action Plan


DRAFT Reconciliation Action Plan [Link]
 Melrose High School, Torrens Primary School, Mawson Primary School and Canberra College

Melrose High School and our PEA schools have worked to identify our Reconciliation Actions within this cluster and some of the future actions and areas that need attention within our school communities.  Reconciliation is an ongoing and positive process which the schools in this cluster have identified as one of the core areas of focus for our school communities.  Please read this Draft RAP [Link] and provide feedback or ideas to  These will be reviewed by a RAP Working Party established across the schools and will include students from different schools within the cluster. 


The Process:

This Community Consultation closes on the 12th of May 2017.  At this point, the Working Party will meet to discuss community feedback and address concerns in the RAP, as needed.  The RAP will then be forwarded to Reconciliation Australia for further review and clarification.  From this feedback, the RAP Working Party will reframe elements of the RAP if required, before sending it for final ratification to Reconciliation Australia.


We look forward to hearing from our parents/carers and wider school community.
