Thornleigh West OOSH


At Thornleigh West OOSH, we would like to acknowledge the Dharug and Guringai Nations, who have continued to nurture and care for the Land on which our service stands since long before the service was established. We wish to embrace Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples past, present and emerging. 

We are a diverse community and want to respectfully respond to and care for Country by knowing that it is growing and changing. We aim to work collaboratively with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to learn from their knowledge and perspectives, and to respectfully share learnings among children, educators and the wider community. 

Our vision is to meaningfully embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures into our everyday program and practices. We aim to plan and provide respectful experiences that explore fairness, justice and equity. We understand that our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a living document, that is constantly growing and we are committed to continuous learning throughout this process.
