First Impressions do count!
Take a walk around your centre or schools front entrance
Put yourself in the shoes of an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander parent coming into your centre for the first time, to see if it is appropriate to care and nurture their child?
What do you see when you walk in?
Would your centre at a glance, show you value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians at a glance?
This resource will examine how easy it is to make your centre culturally safe for Indigenous Australians.
Let's not continue with the excuse..... "We do not have any Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander children in our school, otherwise we would love to have some Indigenous resources".
Do you have people with an Asian, Spanish or African background or any other culture? This resource can be used as a guide to help you "Put your shoes on someone else's feet" to see things from their perspective and give you ideas and inspiration on multicultural education that you can use to bring both Indigenous and other cultural ideas into your centre.
