Examining the Literacy teaching guide: Phonics
We acknowledge the traditional Custodians of this Land, where the Aboriginal People have performed age-old ceremonies of storytelling, music, dance and celebration.
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Elders past and present, and we acknowledge those of the future, for they will hold the memories, traditions and hopes of Aboriginal Australians.
We must always remember that under the concrete and asphalt this Land is, was and always will be traditional Aboriginal Land.
