Brisbane Catholic Education launched its first Reconciliation Action Plan to promote diversity and inclusivity, and demonstrate a commitment to creating and maintaining an organisational culture that is welcoming and culturally safe for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. As a result, Brisbane Catholic Education is in a stronger position to address issues of disparity in education and employment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples compared to non-Indigenous Australians.
The Reconciliation Action Plan:
Brisbane Catholic Education embodies a culture that values health and safety as an enabler to the delivery of quality, inclusive and contemporary Catholic education. Our approach to safety and wellbeing is founded on the idea of personal commitment and individual empowerment.
In 2019, a pilot was undertaken for a new model for delivering workplace health and safety services in schools by improving access by principals and school staff to professional workplace health and safety advice. Two Health and Safety Advisors were assigned a portfolio of schools to ensure that workplace health and safety expertise influenced and informed the prioritisation of improvements and actions in schools. The pilot achieved significant improvements in safety management in the pilot schools.
