PALS is an initiative of the Department of Aboriginal Affairs which encourages Western Australian schools to develop projects that promote reconciliation in their local community.

PALS commenced in 2004 and is based on the core attributes
of:

  • Partnership between Aboriginal and
    non-Aboriginal people;
  • Acceptance of difference as unique and to be
    respected;
  • Learning more about ourselves and each other,
    and,
  • Sharing a common journey along the path of
    healing and reconciliation towards a more harmonious and optimistic
    future.

In 2016, 520 schools from across Western
Au
stralia coordinated 679 PALS projects that aimed to
increase student’s understanding of our unique Aboriginal
culture.

PALS complements the teaching syllabus and can assist schools in
implementing the Aboriginal Cultural Standards Framework. PALS was
developed in collaboration with the Department of Education,
Catholic Education Office and the Association of Independent
Schools WA.

PALS participants contribute to building a better society
– a community that is ultimately free of racism and prejudice and
instead filled with harmony, hope, understanding and
acceptance.
