Focussed on the 'Take Action Against Racism' and 'Celebrate NRW' RAP Actions, this webinar is the first in a series that explores the 14 minimally required RAP Actions for schools and early learning services. It will provide you with the opportunity to participate in professional learning and reflection about how taking action against racism can support reconciliation as a wider school and system priority. It will also explore how taking action against racism and towards reconciliation in your school or early learning service can provide important opportunities for students and children to understand, respect and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures and languages.
