Acknowledgement to Country

We wish to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land we are on, the Whadjuk (Perth region) people. 

We wish to acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of this city and this region.

We would like to acknowledge that this Service is on the traditional lands of the Noongar people.

We would like to acknowledge that this Service is on Aboriginal land and recognise the strength, resilience and capacity of Noongar people in this land.

 

We'd like to thank The South West Aboriginal Land and Sea Council  for providing the 'Acknowledgement to Country' text and to Marissa Verma, CEO BindiBindi Dreaming for giving us permission to use it on our website.

Our Country

The Noongar people are the traditional owners of the south-west of Western Australia.

At Little Learners EDEC we believe it is imperative that children learn about our rich Aboriginal culture through shared learning in order to create mutual respect.

Our children will continue their journey of learning (and reconciliation) through a variety of ongoing weekly activities.

Each week our in-house Aboriginal specialist teaches the children about Noongar culture and during Term Two 2017, our in-house Sustainability specialist will help all of the children set up our own sustainable Aboriginal bush tucker garden using plants as recommended by our Aboriginal consultant.

The Noongar word for welcome ‘Wanju’ is on our front door, an ‘Acknowledgement to Country’ is in our foyer and Aboriginal resources are regularly used throughout our Service as part of our weekly curriculum.
