Bray Park State School has developed a unique framework and implemented innovative and sustainable strategies to foster engagement of Indigenous students, decrease absenteeism, build pride and promote cross cultural knowledge and understanding toward reconciliation.  The framework called 'Bring It On' is an acronym for Building Reconciliation for Indigenous and Non-indigenous Generations through Inclusivity, Truth and trust, Opportunities and New pathways.  As identified in Standard English dictionaries, the term 'bring it on' means 'to meet a challenge'.  Whilst this term stands as an acronym for the program, irontically, its underlying meaning applies to what Bray Park School is doing - meeting the challenge!
