INDIGENOUS EDUCATION

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, the Dunghutti people and pay our respects to the elders past, present and future, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of Indigenous Australia.

Indigenous Education at St Joseph’s is underpinned by the Lismore Catholic Schools Office  Indigenous Education Strategy that promotes the need to continue to educate all staff and students about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island history and culture. The school  has a range of programs which are designed to monitor students’ progress, celebrate culturally significant events and make strategic decisions around the promotion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues in the school community.
