Togetherness Tuesday - Indigenous Representation in the OSHC Environment
About the Event
Indigenous Representation in the OSHC Environment
Australia is home to the world’s oldest living continuous cultures dating back over 100 000 years. These cultures are uniquely Australian and intrinsically linked to this place – country. They contain wisdoms, knowledges and world views thousands of years in the making. They lay the blueprint for what it means to be Australian. Despite this, indigenous representation is largely missing from the main stream Australian context. This racial bias hurts. Children, their families and other key stakeholders cannot feel safe in an environment where they are excluded, made to feel less important or where they are invisible – even when we as services don’t do this deliberately. Further still, we are missing the key foundations of our national identity. On the eve of Reconciliation Week we will discuss Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representation in the OSHC environment. Can we make our first nations cultures seen, heard and celebrated?
Our Panel will include Educators from several of our membership services who look forward to sharing their story.
Join us as we experiment with our new more collaborative format!
