Acknowledgement

Beaconhills College acknowledges the Wurundjeri and Bunurong – Boon Wurrung peoples as the Traditional Custodians of this land on which our College is built. We honour and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connection with this Country which includes Traditional Custodianship of the land, waterways and skies across Australia. We honour the richness, diversity and sophistication of the cultures of First Nations peoples. We admit with sorrow the wrongs of the past that have taken place and continue into today and that sovereignty was never ceded. We pay deep respects to Elders past and present and honour the strong leadership that is evident in the emerging Elders of tomorrow. We recognise that education is the key to unlocking our understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia and seek to explore what reconciliation means at Beaconhills College by partnering together and working to build a more just and compassionate society for the traditional owners of this land.
