Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners

Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners

We are committed to supporting reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian people.

In keeping with the spirit of Reconciliation, we acknowledge the Gubbi Gubbi People, traditional owners of the lands where Little Diggers Early Learning Centre now stands, and recognise that these have always been places of teaching and learning.

We wish to pay respect to their Elders – past, present and emerging – and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within the Little Diggers Early Learning Centre community.

Responsibility

We acknowledge the particular responsibility of Early Childhood Educational settings to redress disadvantage through Indigenous education and to overcome prejudice by educating the Australian community about the cultures and experiences of Indigenous Australian people.

Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners for presentations

We encourage all staff and students to have an Acknowledgement of Traditional Owners at all formal presentations and meetings.
