THE ICEA REPS GROUP IS CONNECTING LIKE-MINDED STUDENTS TO A MEANINGFUL RECONCILIATION COMMUNITY. 

ICEA Reps is a fun, safe, inclusive environment where young people can…

  • build new connections with like-minded, energetic young people
  • share their barriers, challenges and successes in reconciliation
  • develop skills and strategies to drive reconciliation in their school community
  • form new friendships and build their own self-confidence and social awareness
  • have their ideas listened to, be valued, supported and empowered to pursue their own initiatives
ICEA reps is a fortnightly meeting where young teens from various schools come together to chat about reconciliation and what it means for us as young Australians. The Reps meetings are a great way to get involved with ICEA and really find out the true meaning of Aboriginal cultures and histories both past and present.
— Phoebe, ICEA Student Rep 2017
