Acknowledgment of Country

Welcome to Crestwood Public School where we proudly stand on Darug land. It is on this land that we work, learn and play.

We acknowledge the Elders past, present and future. We recognise Aboriginal people as the First Australians, and remember that they did not give up this land willingly.

We recognise the strength and resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and value their impact and contributions to our shared history. 

We are committed to building our understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and to celebrating the oldest living culture in human history. We will make sure the voices of First Nations people are heard, and not silenced as they have been in years gone by.

We promise to continue to nurture this land and its waterways as the Darug people have for thousands of years. As we pass through this land we promise to travel thoughtfully and respectfully, remembering the footsteps of the ancestors who have walked this land for countless generations. 

This land was and always will be Aboriginal land.
