Acknowledge of country
In recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples spiritual connection to Country and in continuing ASPA’s commitment to Reconciliation, on behalf of all of us gathered here today I acknowledge the First Peoples, the traditional custodians of Country where ASPA schools are located. Each of these nations has faithfully cared for Country for thousands of years. I respectfully acknowledge our Elders past and present and remember that they have passed on their wisdom and their spiritual connection to us in various ways. Let us hold this in trust as we work and serve our communities.
