Acknowledgement of Country

Here in Dederang we gather on Dhudhuroa country. We pay our respects to the Dhudhuroa elders past , present and future, who have nurtured this land for many centuries. We thank them for the trees, the animals and birds, the clear waters and the fertile land on which we learn, play and grow. We promise to look after this land and to make it a sustainable place for future generations to come. We are part of this land and this land is part of us.
