Our students are our greatest resource and they are supported in developing the attributes required to become leaders and instilling in them a love of learning.
Acknowledgement to Country

Hello, welcome great men and great women. We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet, the Wadjak people, part of the Noongar nation. Wadjak country extends from Perth and all through the Swan Coastal Plains. It is on this very place we meet today where the Wadjak people have lived for thousands of years and will continue to live for tens of thousands more.
As their elders have stated, we are all a part of this journey together and it is important that we embrace OUR Wadjak culture, with the respect and acknowledgement it deserves. We also acknowledge the contributions of Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal Australians to the education of all children and people in this country we all live in and share together – Australia. It is a privilege to be meeting on this land.
