Indigenous focus and reconciliation

At Seymour College we strive to reconcile, action and embed Indigenous learning into our curriculum and within daily College life.

We are committed to reconciliation

We acknowledge the strength, courage and survival of Indigenous peoples, their status as traditional custodians of the land, and recognise the impact of history relating to land, cultures, languages and families.

We also understand the vital role that education plays in supporting reconciliation and we support all our students in allowing their voices to be heard. Through various initiatives we are focused on ensuring we create transformational relationships with Indigenous people, allowing reconciliation at Seymour to continue being a daily habit, not a once a year acknowledgment.

A note from our Indigenous Student Coordinator

As the Indigenous Coordinator it is inspiring to witness and continue the wonderful work Seymour College does in acknowledging and celebrating the traditional owners of the land.

Seymour College offers specific Indigenous Scholarships to support Indigenous enrolments and increase the diversity of our community in collaboration with the AIEF (Australian Indigenous Education Fund). As a community we continue to benefit from the significant input the girls have into crucial events at the College such as National Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week, as well as embedding Indigenous perspectives into College life.

In my role as Indigenous Coordinator, I am excited to offer the Indigenous students and families specific support and, as part of that, assist where I can, to promote significant and relevant learning. I look forward to continuing to contribute to and experiencing the benefits of our ever-growing, diverse and culturally rich student population at Seymour College.

We strive to ensure that Indigenous culture and beliefs are ingrained and celebrated continuously throughout the College community.
