Reconciliation Action Plan
Our College recognises and respects the First Peoples of this land. We believe teaching our students about reconciliation and our nation’s history can foster a higher level of knowledge and pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island cultures and contributions.
At Ryan Catholic College, we see reconciliation as treating and being treated as equals, regardless of background and upbringing.
Australia is a multicultural society and we aim to embrace and treasure what each individual brings to our school. Our aim is to acknowledge and celebrate the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage of Australia through sharing and experiencing activities and events within our school and broader community.
A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a document that provides a framework for organisations to support the national reconciliation movement. For schools across the country, completing a RAP is done using this model.
Ryan Catholic College, like all schools in the Townsville Diocese is committed to ensuring our school is a safe environment for our students. Further information can be found at the Townsville Catholic Education Website.
The Student Protection processes for the Townsville Catholic Education Office (including Ryan Catholic College) have been developed in order to assist all schools to meet legislative and procedural processes for responding to, and reporting, abuse, harm and behaviour of a staff member that a student considers is inappropriate.
Townsville Catholic Education Policies
The Diocesan Education Council (DEC) assists the Bishop in formulating the Townsville Diocesan Catholic Education vision and identity. The DEC makes and monitors educational policies so that they are consistent with the Diocesan Mission Statement. The policy framework of the Diocesan Education Council provides a unifying focus for all Diocesan colleges, and colleges formulate additional policies to address operational aspects of school life.
We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land, the Wulgurukaba people. We also acknowledge their neighbouring brothers and sisters on the land, the Bindal people. We pay our respects to elders past present and emerging. May we walk gently and peacefully on this land together.
