MOOLAP INDIGENOUS PROGRAM

Moolap Primary School is committed
to strengthening relationships
between the wider Australian community
and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
for the benefit of all Australians. 

At our School, we have a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)
which contains our formal statement
of commitment to Reconciliation.

Our RAP Working Group guides the School
to ensure our vision for Reconciliation is embedded
in our day-to-day learning and conduct.  

Using the Narragunnawali platform,
we teach and learn about the concept, history and progress
of Reconciliation.

Our students are encouraged
to think about how they can contribute
to the development of stronger respect, relationships and opportunities
in the classroom, around the school and with their community.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of our school lands, the Wadawurrung people, and pay our respects to elders past, present and future.

NEW HOUSE COLOURS ANNOUNCED!

Students have thought for some time that the house system needed a re-vamp and they have been getting feedback from students and the community on possible new names.  Students finalised the names and have also linked the names to their local Wadawurrung language meaning.  The students wanted to recognise native animals and found an animal that came from the sky, water, air and land. 
The new names are: 

Green House
Barnong
(Ringtail Possum)

Yellow House
Kuwark
(Kookaburra)

Blue House
Perridak
(Platypus)

Red House
Lelon
(Lizard)

Students will be working on designing a logo for each house group
