Reconciliation Plan & Custodian Acknowledgement
At Nagle Catholic College, we acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which the College is built - the Yamaji land and the local people of Geraldton and surrounds - the Wajarri people both past and present.

The College was the first school in Western Australia to develop a Reconciliation Action Plan. It can be viewed as a PDF via the link below.

Australian Aboriginal Flag and Commemorative Plaque
On Sorry Day 26th May 2009 the College installed its Australian Aboriginal Flag and a plaque recognising the traditional custodians. The position of the Aboriginal Flag is next to the national flag which is always first on the left in any flag standard. The Aboriginal Flag consists of the three colours - Black - represents the Aboriginal people of Australia, Red - represents the red earth, the red ochre used in ceremonies and Aboriginal people's spiritual relation to the land, Yellow disk - represents the Sun, the giver of life and protector. The plaque shown in the photo was unveiled by local Yamaji Elders following a Welcome to Country which are acknowledged on the plaque. The plaque is installed on the wall below the flag installation.
