What is a Reconciliation Action Plan? 
Does your school or organisation have one?
Examples of practical actions taken to develop and implement your organisation or school’s RAP. 
 
Dr Elaine Lewis will discuss the vital role of Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs) in fostering and developing higher levels of knowledge and understanding, respectful relationships and meaningful opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In workplaces, including not-for-profit organisations, RAPs may progress through four types of Reconciliation Australia plans – Reflect, Innovate, Stretch and Elevate.  In schools and early learning centres a RAP may be developed to support reconciliation, employing Reconciliation Australia’s Narragunnawali platform.   An alternative RAP approach in Western Australian government schools may be driven by the Department of Education’s Aboriginal Cultural Standards Framework.  This presentation will elaborate on the successful development and implementation of the One World Centre’s RAP and a school RAP.  These RAPs demonstrate action on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4: Quality Education and SDG 16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.   The session will conclude with discussion and planning time to enable links to be made to individual contexts.

 “How deeply have you embedded the Aboriginal Cross Curriculum Priority in your school?”

Dr Elaine Lewis will address the challenges and rewards of deeply embedding the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures Cross Curriculum Priority and the Aboriginal Cultural Standards Framework in a whole school context. She will refer to a 5 year case study in a WA primary school context and reflect on the planning, implementation and evaluation processes involved in embedding the Aboriginal priority and Framework across learning areas.
VENUE: One World Centre, 5 King William Street, BAYSWATER WA

The Western Australian Curriculum acknowledges the importance of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures cross curriculum priority.  This priority, together with the Aboriginal Cultural Standards Framework and the Western Australian Humanities and Social Sciences Curriculum, support schools in the State to become more culturally responsive.
This presentation addresses the challenges to deeply embed the Aboriginal priority across a wide range of learning areas and meaningfully engage with the Framework.  A case study was conducted over five years (2013-2017) involving a primary school in the Perth Metropolitan Area.  The whole school, consisting of eighteen classes from Kindy to Year 6, participated.  This case study aimed to elucidate the planning, implementation and evaluation processes involved in embedding the Aboriginal priority where there was a natural fit in different learning areas, and the implementation of the Framework.  Several learning areas will be examined to determine where and how the Aboriginal priority was embedded.  Project results include evidence of effective and meaningful embedding of the Aboriginal priority, positive stakeholder feedback, conservation links and high levels of student engagement.  However, it was found that the implementation of the Framework required adjustment in a school with low numbers of Aboriginal students.  Finally, future directions for school leadership, teacher education and school relationships with other organisations will be discussed.

MAPW_OWC_’Enduring Effects of War’ flyer
Wars endure in people’s everyday lives well after they have come to an official end.  The effects of war last for lifetimes and generations, and can have a devastating impact on an individual’s physical, social and psychological wellbeing. Our understanding and awareness of these effects can empower us to make choices and act in ways which build peaceful societies that promote the security and wellbeing of all.
Mr Brian Cleaver will discuss his war experiences as a conscript in the Australian armed forces in Vietnam and reflect upon the enduring impacts that his exposure to battle have had on his life.
Dr Caroline Marsh will introduce curriculum materials produced by the MAPW (Australia) for the Year 10 History Curriculum. The information and ideas presented will also be relevant to Secondary HASS teachers interested in teaching and learning for ethical understanding, intercultural awareness and global citizenship, and for upper-level History teachers covering Australia’s relationship with Asia and Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam/American War.
This event will be of interest to teachers and members of the community who seek greater awareness of the enduring effects of war and to participate in action for peaceful and inclusive societies for all.
 ABOUT THE PRESENTER
Brian Cleaver, a National Serviceman conscript, was sent to fight for Australia in Vietnam in 1967. The trauma of Brian’s experiences at the Battles of Coral and Balmoral led to him suffer Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The story of Brian’s war experiences and his subsequent search for the mass grave of 42 soldiers of the North Vietnamese Army was presented in the film “The Crater: A true Vietnam War Story” (David Bradbury (dir.) Frontline Films, 2015)).

‘He Named Me Malala’ is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley.  The then 15-year-old (she is now 18) was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.

Acclaimed documentary film maker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) shows us how Malala, her father Zia and her family are committed to fighting for education for all girls worldwide. The film gives us an inside glimpse into this extraordinary young girl’s life – from her close relationship with her father who inspired her love for education, to her impassioned speeches at the United Nations, to her everyday life with her parents and brothers.

“One child, one teacher, one book and one pen can change the world.” – Malala

A NOT TO BE MISSED TALK: BEYOND PETROL
presented by
Leo Kerr

Date: Friday 9th October 2015
Place: One World Centre, 5 King William Street, Bayswater
Time: 6 -7pm (presentation followed by time to chat).
Tickets: $10 waged $8 unwaged
Book through:  http://www.trybooking.com/160259electric car

This is a no frills presentation. Bring your own drinks and snacks as you require.
Do come a little earlier and check out the Fair Trade shop

About the speaker:

The My Electric Car website was developed by Leo Kerr in 2009 having had his Mitsubishi Mirage converted to electric in 2008. This site is an information site on EVs. As a life member of Men of The Trees in Western Australia since 1988, Leo has a keen environmental interest and was founder or co-founder of a number of Men of The Trees initiatives including, The Million Tree Program (1990), The Children’s Forest (1999) and Carbon Neutral (2001). “When you drive electric, you know you are experiencing what the future holds for transport – it just makes sense. No toxic emissions, quiet and cheap to run. I purchase green energy and have solar panels on the roof at home. Burning oil to power a vehicle is an inexcusable waste of a precious resource. From an energy security standpoint, from environmental and health perspectives, the sooner we transition to electric the better.”
About the topic
The presentation will discuss Electric Vehicles, Autonomous Vehicles (driver less cars) and the disruption these technologies will have on the automobile and oil industries. It will cover the electric cars currently available in Australia and what we should expect over the next few years. The presentation topics will range from horse manure to the demise of the traffic cop.
