We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land upon which we gather and pay our respect to the Elders, past, present and future, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of Indigenous Australia.
We welcome and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families to work in partnership with us to achieve successful educational outcomes. Catholic Education recognises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians with one of the oldest continuing cultures in human history. We recognise and celebrate the unique giftedness that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and their families bring to the school community.
We appreciate the support of our own School Based Indigenous Teacher Assistant and our Diocesan Staff who assist us in ensuring that Star of the Sea seeks to be a culturally safe place of learning, growing and belonging for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, families and community members. As mandated in our Australian Curriculum, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives are integrated across the Star of the Sea curriculum.
