The Department of Education supports children with an education that is equitable and embraces diversity. This is enshrined in the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child. It is also a feature of the Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration which is central to the Australian Curriculum.
This education is inclusive of students’ individual strengths and needs. Differences in terms of characteristics such as ethnicity, language, culture, gender, socioeconomic status, disability and sexual orientation should be supported with access to a high-quality education.
Recognising the beauty and strength of diversity at Jolimont PS is important in overcoming stereotypes, building cultural awareness and fostering unity and growth.
These areas are addressed in the Jolimont PS Business Plan 2021-2024 with a focus on Student Learning & Wellbeing:
- a holistic approach to care of individual student wellbeing
- flexible outdoor learning environments that enhance teaching and learning
- creating a culturally responsive school which embeds diversity and indigenous cultures
We are committed to building a culturally responsive organisation and creating a strong school ethos based on respecting and valuing diversity.
