Embedding Aboriginal Perspectives

Our Reconciliation Journey at Dawson St. Children's Centre

Acknowledgement of Country

At Dawson St. Children's Centre we would like to acknowledge that we teach, learn and play on Wurundjeri land. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.

We strive to create a community of learners who understand the true histories of where we live and develop an appreciation for First Nation culture.

Why to include First Nations Culture into our Program?

Because we teach in Indigenous land and we recognize that Indigenous People are the First Custodians of this land. Being aware of the history of the place where you grow up builds better informed and critical citizens. It promotes respect and belonging.
