Acknowledgement of Country
The Department of Education acknowledges the traditional owners of the lands from across Queensland and pays respect to Elders—past, present and emerging—for they hold the memories, traditions, cultures 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.
Read our commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Commitment Statement.
Human rights commitment
We will create a stronger, fairer Queensland by respecting, protecting and promoting human rights in everything we do.
