Rye Primary School

Indigenous Perspectives

The vision of Rye Primary School is to create a culturally aware environment where students, families and educators come to listen to, empathise with, and learn about the stories of First Nations peoples and cultures. Our vision is based on the belief that First Nations Peoples have the right to self-determination and to educate the wider Australian community through truth-telling about their cultural heritage, experiences and continuing contributions.

Rye Primary School

Working towards reconciliation

Rye Primary School respects and acknowledges the traditional owners of this land and is committed to embedding First People’s perspectives into our curriculum and community. Our children are immersed in Indigenous culture via a range of learning activities and special events throughout the year. We ensure that our practices and Koori cultural expressions are in consultation with the Traditional Owners/Custodians of the land on which this school stands, the Boonwurrung/Bunurong people.


As a school we will continue to strive towards acts of reconciliation and place an importance on fostering positive relationships between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
