“A future based on mutual respect, mutual resolve and mutual responsibility.
A future where all Australians, whatever their origins, are truly equal partners,
With equal opportunities and with an equal stake
in shaping the next chapter in the history of this great country, Australia”.
(Kevin Rudd, 2008)
St Joseph’s Parish School is committed to building respectful and complementary relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians and peoples who share our place.
We respectfully acknowledge the past and present traditional owners of this land on which we are meeting – the Algnith people. We also acknowledge the contributions of Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal Australians to the education of all children and people in our country Australia, in which we all live and share together.
