The Friends’ School community acknowledges Tasmanian Aboriginal Peoples as the traditional custodians and owners of this island lutruwita / trowunna.

As a learning community, we recognise the value of continuing Aboriginal knowledge and cultural practice, which helps inform our understanding of history, culture and country.

We pay our respects to the Elders past and present.

We acknowledge the strength and resilience of all of Tasmania’s First Peoples and we walk alongside them respectfully bearing witness.
