Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

The 2021 Reconciliation Action Plan Working Team consists of 6 members who met weekly to create the Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and plan action for implementation.

Our LHC College and Community:

• Acknowledge and recognise the heritage and cultural values of the First Nations students and staff as an integral part of our College

• Action through real strategies, staffing and resources to meet the cultural and educational needs of our First Nations students through our Mirragin Program and Reconciliation Projects

• Envision a place of teaching and learning that is culturally inclusive, where diversity is acknowledged, aspirations for success are fostered, and genuine conversations about creating equal and equitable opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are ongoing

• Commit to respectfully incorporating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives throughout our curriculum and pastoral programs, and support and encourage educational opportunities to consult local First Nations communities, Elders and traditional custodians

• Hope to be a community which not only respects the human rights of all people, but also respects and promotes the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Peoples of our Land, not merely one minority among others, but the First Peoples of this Land (Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium, No. 190; Laudato Si No.146)

• Recognise our shared past and commit to working towards a shared future in which all people are treated with dignity, compassion and respect.

We invite you to read and be inspired by our 2021 RAP.
