Randwick Public School acknowledges the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation as the traditional custodians of the land upon which are school stands and pay our respects to Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people both past and present. We extend our respect to the ancestors and spirits of this land and humbly ask that all members of the Randwick School community are granted with the capacity to wingara – to think, to learn and to walk safely upon this land.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples histories and cultures is one of the 3 cross-curriculum priorities of the NSW syllabus, providing opportunities for all students to deepen their knowledge of Australia by engaging with the world’s oldest continuous living cultures. The essential knowledge, understanding and skills of the priority are embedded throughout all Stage programs at RPS and delivered to students via authentic and engaging learning experiences.
Randwick Public students, staff and school community respectfully acknowledge and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples histories and cultures through participation in events which include Reconciliation Week & Sorry Day, annual NAIDOC Assembly, incursions and excursions to Botanical Gardens (to learn about bush tucker and history of Sydney Cove) Kamay National Park (histories pre and post colonial) Art Gallery of New South Wales (Indigenous art), celebrating outstanding achievements of Indigenous students via nomination for Deadly Kids Awards and submission of student artworks to the Koori Art Expressions exhibition held annually.
