Findon High School aims to value and amplify the voices of First Nations peoples within our school community.
Through enabling cultural learning across the entire student cohort, we emphasise the importance of understanding the history and beliefs of First Nations peoples and celebrate the Kaurna people as the traditional owners of the land upon which Findon resides today.
Acknowledgement of Country
We would like to acknowledge that Findon High School is situated on the land of the Kaurna people. This land always has and always will belong to the First Nations people.
We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and acknowledge the pain and struggle they have experienced and continue to experience to this day. We hope that with the community we have at our school we can bring about change in order to live in a more respectful and inclusive environment.
Reconciliation Action Plan
In 2021, we created a Findon High School Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) group to collaboratively write 12 measurable goals that promote reconciliation at our school. The goals and actions of our RAP are:
- mapping, building on and celebrating First Nations perspectives and histories currently taught across subjects and year levels
- involving First Nations people in the design and delivery of student learning and teacher professional development
- strengthening our partnerships with First Nations families
- celebrating Kaurna people as the traditional owners of the land we learn on with the crafting of a Kaurna shield by Kaurna Elder, Jack Buckskin, and permanently displaying it at the school entrance.
