Indigenous Acknowledgement

Lyndale Secondary College respectfully recognises the historical and cultural significance of Australia’s Indigenous history and the role it plays in contemporary education.

Each day in Australia, we all walk on ancestral Indigenous lands.

We, therefore, acknowledge the Traditional Owners of lands across Australia, their Elders, Ancestors, cultures and heritage.

We are honoured to recognise our connection to Wurundjeri Country, history, culture and spirituality through these locations, and strive to ensure that we operate in a manner that respects and honours the Elders and Ancestors of these lands.
