We invite to participate in this significant event thus contributing to our efforts to ‘Close the Gap’ for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

The Conference brings together education and community practitioners to share unique perspectives on building systems and practices that allow Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families to thrive. We anticipate attracting over 500 delegates including staff, students, community, and leaders of Catholic schools across NSW.

Conference Theme

The conference theme ‘Transforming with the Spirit’ reflects a commitment to make a difference to the lives of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and is an opportunity to more fully understand the contribution we can all make to reconciliation and healing. The program will feature presentations on country experiences and discussion panels from local and national keynote speakers. There will be up to 50 sessions, including panel discussions and workshops around the questions:

  • What needs to be said?
  • What needs to be heard?
  • What needs to be experienced?
  • What needs to be enacted?

This will be a transforming event that you would not want to miss!

About the 2022 Conference

Catholic schools educate around one in five students in NSW, including working with families and communities for great outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people. Our strong commitment to Closing the Gap is founded in our Catholic faith.

The 2022 Conference will provide a unique opportunity for people to explore effective and culturally appropriate strategies and current practices targeted towards Closing the Gap in educational outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young peoples.

It is also an opportunity to play an active role in the process of reconciliation by strengthening existing networks. It will be an experience that inspires ongoing relationships and partnerships leading to greater opportunities for students. On Country experiences will align with the way Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders connect with Country and with each other.
