Cultural Integrity

We would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of our land and their continuing connection to country. We also pay our respects to the elders both past and present and thank them for allowing us to walk on their country and learn their ways.

Here at Evatt we don’t just celebrate a significant date or week, every day is used to celebrate our families culture, heritage and differences.

Students of ‘Gudhaya Yadhang’ are learning about their culture by engaging in a variety of opportunities such as connecting with elders, learning about how children play, how to look after country, as well as listening to dreamtime stories and songlines. Students are being given the skills and confidence to share their culture with others in their mainstream classes as well as at assemblies. Our focus this year is to write a book and connect with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women in our community, like fire women, educators, elders and sports people. The NADIOC theme this year is ‘because of her, we can!’ We love having a yarn and welcome you to join us and learn about our culture and love for our country and people.
