Back in February 2020, the Commissioners and staff of the Victorian Multicultural Commission shared a special experience with the teachers and families of Bubup Wilam Aboriginal Child and Family in Thomastown, Melbourne, Victoria.
This week, we join Australians across the continent in recognising the significance of reconciliation and why we must all play a role in achieving an equitable and reconciled nation. The Victorian Multicultural Commission acknowledges First Nations People as the traditional owners of the land, and respect their continuous spiritual, cultural, material and economic connection to land, water and resources.
We commit to creating and strengthening relationships with Aboriginal Victorians that are based on truth and mutual respect. We also commit to facilitating and supporting meaningful connections between Aboriginal Victorians and multicultural communities.
We have begun our journey of listening and learning, and we encourage all Victorians to join us.Beginning our Journey of Learning — Visit to Bubup Wilam
Our thanks and warm appreciation to Lisa Thorpe, Robbie Thorpe and all the teachers, students and families of the school.
