Aboriginal students who attend Reynella East College are supported by an Aboriginal Education Teacher (AET) and an Aboriginal Community Education Officer (ACEO). The AET provides in class support, mentoring and curriculum development for Aboriginal students. The ACEO works with parents/carers of Aboriginal students to support their learning and cultural connections in the community.
All Aboriginal students are provided with an individual learning plan. We incorporate the National Curriculum cross curriculum priority – ATSI histories and cultures, in both the primary and secondary sections within all curriculum areas.
Our whole school community celebrates key dates of cultural significance such as Reconciliation Week Week and special events throughout the year.
