Reconciliation Action Plan

The SACE Board is an educational leader and proud of its work and support of Aboriginal Education. To champion reconciliation more broadly and develop our internal awareness, knowledge and respect for Aboriginal cultures, histories and perspectives, we established our first (Reflect) Reconciliation Action Plan in 2019, which was about looking at ourselves as an organisation and identifying the things we can do to contribute to reconciliation. We have completed the Reflect stage and are now at the Innovate stage.

The Innovate RAP is about strengthening and developing relationships, engaging with staff and stakeholders in reconciliation and piloting innovative strategies to ensure effective outcomes. This will ensure the sustainability of future RAPs and reconciliation initiatives and provide meaningful impact towards Australia’s reconciliation journey.

In 2021, the SACE Board partnered with Anangu artist Elizabeth Close to codesign a piece of art that would reflect the SACE Board’s strategic plan, as well as their vision for reconciliation. Elizabeth hosted multiple conversations with members of the SACE Board’s RAP Working Group, staff and executives to deeply understand the organisation’s culture and shared understanding of our Reflect RAP journey. The final design - Shared Journey; Own Path - is a proud piece of shared concept wonderfully executed by the artist.

It provides protections for some persons who make an appropriate disclosure of public interest information in accordance with the PID Act and sets out processes for dealing with such disclosures.
