Our journey towards promoting reconciliation in our Preschool started with shared discussions between Teachers and Educators at a staff meeting 18 months ago. We talked about our personal knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, acknowledging that our education only briefly touched on this important part of Australia’s history.
Mentoring is a relationship between colleagues focusing on supported learning. Everyone can benefit from being involved in a mentoring relationship. It can help us feel encouraged in our roles and responsibilities working with children, families, and colleagues. When we feel supported, we are more likely to cope with challenges and feel sustained to assist others.
