Acknowledgement of Country

​We all have a role in creating workplaces, schools and communities that value, support, and uphold the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The Department of Education acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands from across Queensland and pays respect to the Elders – past and present – for they hold the memories, traditions, the culture and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the state.

A better understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures develops an enriched appreciation of Australia's cultural heritage and can lead to reconciliation.

This is essential to the maturity of Australia as a nation and fundamental to the development of an Australian identity.

We are committed to delivering aspirational, educational, economic and social outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
