RAP Working Grouphttp://www.christthekingdbay.qld.edu.au/latest-news-events/Pages/RAP-Working-Group.aspxRAP Working Group<p></p><p>As a system Brisbane Catholic Education is committed to making reconciliation a reality in our schools. At a school level we need to lead by example and show our heart and faith is in the right place – guiding us as we advocate for equity and justice for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and employees. Each school has been asked to develop an Action Plan, which sees the Christ the King staff and students working in partnership with parents, the wider community, local businesses, and service providers to ensure that we provide an environment where all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples feel welcomed, included, and comfortable to identify.<br><br>We are asking that any parent who would like to be involved in our RAP working group to please email their interest to <a href="mailto:mlogan@bne.catholic.edu.au" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer">mlogan@bne.catholic.edu.au</a><br><br></p><p>Your commitment to this plan would be to attend a couple of meetings per year and to be involved with some decision-making processes around the actions that we commit to as a school. We look forward to building a strong team, where we are able to identify specific actions to ensure that Christ the King primary school is inclusive and welcoming to all.</p><p>​​<br><br></p>

Andrew Chinn Visits CtKhttp://www.christthekingdbay.qld.edu.au/latest-news-events/Pages/Andrew-Chinn-Visits-CtK.aspxAndrew Chinn Visits CtK<p><img src="/latest-news-events/PublishingImages/AndrewChinn2022Visit.jfif" alt="AndrewChinn2022Visit.jfif" style="margin:5px;width:536px;" /><br><br></p><p>Last week we had the ever engaging and inspiring Andrew Chinn visit to launch another song for our school. Andrew first visited our school over 18 years ago. This was the first time he had seen his name on a school sign. He took a photo to show his Mum. Above his name was our school moto ‘Side by side we grow’. This gave him some inspiration for some song lyrics. After visiting some other schools and gathering more inspiration, Andrew contacted CTK all those years ago with the ‘Rainbow’ song. Andrew has sang our song all over the world and it is one of his all-time number one songs. </p><p>We invited Andrew back last year, to write another song that incorporated our 4 values of Hope, Justice, Compassion and Courage. Due to Covid a small group of students and Andrew worked on writing and singing this song. Last week he worked with all the students to launch this new song. He even took some footage to put together a video clip to go on his website. ‘Side by side we grow’ is not replacing our ‘Rainbow’ song, in the words of Mrs Conley it is just another number 1 hit on the CTK album. The students and teachers had a brilliant day singing and dancing….we can’t wait to sing both our songs at upcoming liturgies and masses.​<br></p><p><br>Below is the link to first video Andrew created via Teams when he was unable to travel to us due to COVID.<br></p><p><a href="https://youtu.be/3r9EPQfExf0" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noreferrer">https://youtu.be/3r9EPQfExf0</a><br></p><p>​<a href="https://youtu.be/3r9EPQfExf0" target="_blank"><img src="/latest-news-events/PublishingImages/videoplayer.jpg" alt="videoplayer.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:536px;" />​</a><br></p>
