How awesome!

Join us for this great event!📣 National Reconciliation Week 2024 at Buxton Primary School 📣

We’re excited to announce that Buxton Primary School and Council have partnered to host an event to celebrate National Reconciliation Week 2024. 🎉

Join us on Thursday 30 May from 10.30 am to 12.00 noon at Buxton Primary School, 2208 Maroondah Highway, Buxton VIC 3711, for a day of learning and celebration. 🏫

The event will feature:

🎙️ A message from Principal Sarah Irving
🍃 A Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony
🎶 A song performed in language by the talented students
🚶‍♀️🚶‍♂️ A guided tour of the Warrk Warrk Trail
☕️🥐 And of course, a morning tea!

📞 For further information, please call Council on 5772 0333 and ask to speak with Izzy from the Community Wellbeing team.

This event is part of our ongoing efforts to respect and celebrate the cultural heritage of our First Nations Peoples. We believe that reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds, and actions of all Australians. Let’s move forward together, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 🤝

⁉️Did you know⁉️ In 2018, Taungurung Language and Culture became the Language Other Than English (LOTE) program at Buxton Primary School. The students use Taungurung Language daily in class for greetings, acknowledgements, and other learning tasks. They have a strong understanding of, and connection to, the Taungurung concept of custodianship of the land. 🌏

We look forward to seeing you there! 🙌

Values

Buxton Primary School’s values are kindness, fairness and growth:

  • We strive for equity and fairness in how we treat each other and understand that our attitudes and behaviours have an impact on the people around us.
  • We model and demonstrate kindness and take every opportunity to help others that may be in need.
  • We strive for growth, which means identifying our starting points in our learning, trying our hardest and celebrating our progress.

Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge the Taungurung people as the first peoples of Buxton and the surrounding areas. The Taungurung have been custodians and caretakers of the land, animals and waters for many thousands of years and continue to perform age-old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal. We also recognise other Indigenous peoples living and working in the Buxton area.

Resilience, Rights and Respectful Relationships

In response to the Royal Commission into Family Violence, Buxton Primary School is committed to promoting and embedding respectful relationships and gender equality into our school’s curriculum, ethos, vision and values. In our school, the focus is on treating everyone with respect and dignity, developing personal, social and emotional skills and contributing to early intervention through education. We aim to create real and lasting change in the lives of our students, staff, families and the wider school community.
