Acknowledgement of Country: We give thanks and respectfully acknowledge the Gurrumbilbarra Wulgurukaba people, the Traditional Custodians of this beautiful country whose land our College shares. We recognise their ongoing deep spiritual connection to this Country, and the care they gave for thousands of years. We also acknowledge the Bindal people as the neighbouring Custodians of their Country. We pay our respects the Elders, past, present and emerging and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples here today.
