Talking with your child about racism
As a school community we are exceptionally proud of all our students regardless of their religious beliefs, their family situation, their gender, their ethnicity or the colour of their skin. We celebrate diversity at our school. We respect diversity at our school. We value respect. We expect respect. We show respect. It’s what we do.
We also recognise that children come to school to learn. They come to learn to read and write, to add and subtract. They also come to school to learn how to interact with others socially and to regulate their emotions. They are learning what is appropriate in different circumstances and what is unacceptable in our community. They need an opportunity to learn, and we need an opportunity to teach them.
However, from time to time, there are issues which arise. Sometimes, students make racial remarks. These are often phrases that children have heard and are repeating without thought, usually without any racist intent. However, they do not realise the significance that these words have when adults use them in our community, nor the hurt and shame they inflict on the people they are said to.
We do not tolerate racism at our school. It is hurtful, harmful and abhorrent to direct insults at a person based on their skin colour or ethnicity.
Over recent times, we have been doing some significant work in further strengthening cultural understanding and safety at our school. We want all students to feel they belong here, that they are respected here. We have made some fabulous strides forward in this area and proud of our achievements.
