Wominjeka - Welcome
Acknowledgment to Traditional Owners
Since long before our time, the First People to live on and care for this Land are the Wurundjeri people. They are the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the Land on which Isabel Henderson Kindergarten is built. Together, we are on a journey to learn and to respectfully share knowledge about caring for Country; protecting and replenishing this Land. By connecting children to the Wurundjeri people, teachings and stories, we hope that they too will care for the Land, and waterways - taking only what they need, and cherishing it for others to appreciate into the future. We also pay our respects to the Wurundjeri Elders past, present and future, acknowledging the vital role they play in connection to Country and culture.
