Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge the traditional custodians and Elders past and present, who have raised children, taught them about the world around them and gave them the gift of culture and language. We recognise our part in bringing fairness to our Indigenous brothers and sisters and creating a community where all children, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, can ‘grow up strong’.

We support diversity and inclusivity and welcome all people to our service, regardless of race, religion, gender or sexuality.
