RECONCILIATION

Central Coast Community College acknowledges the traditional custodians of the land upon which we share our knowledge with each other and the wider community. We pay our respects to elders past and present, and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

At the College, we are committed to building better relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the wider Australian community for the benefit of all Australians.

We support the local Aboriginal community through:

  • participating in the Central Coast Aboriginal Education Pathways Awards which celebrate Aboriginal students graduating from nationally recognised qualifications, as well as those achieving their School Certificate and High School Certificate.
  • sponsoring the Aboriginal Reconciliation Week Artists Exhibition and Competition. The College sponsors the Frank Baxter Award, which provides recognition for Aboriginal artists from the Frank Baxter Juvenile Justice Centre, supporting their rehabilitation, sense of cultural identity and self esteem.
  • attending NAIDOC and Reconciliation week celebrations. These celebrations help to connect service providers with the local community and provide an opportunity to liaise with others supporting the Aboriginal community.
  • providing a range of culturally sensitive funded learning programs that prepare Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students for working on the Central Coast.
