Mitchell EEC


Yowallah means 'Hello' in the language of the Gunggari people; the First People to live here. Mitchell EEC stands on their Country.                                                                                           

We value and recognise the work and teachings of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in our community.

We believe in building partnerships and establishing strong connections with the wider community. We place high value on our relationship with local Bidjara Elder, Aunty Des, and are committed to continuing to develop relationships with Aboriginal community members. We welcome involvement in our educational program by our Aboriginal staff members, their families and other Aboriginal community members.

We aim to raise awareness and knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures, including an understanding about the injustices which have continued to impact on Australia's First Peoples since colonisation.

We are committed to ensuring the contributions we make to reconciliation are powerful and valuable. We believe that the future wellbeing of all Australians depends on respectful and positive relationships and a co-existence of rights between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and non-Indigenous people.  We recognise our role and responsibility to provide programs that are culturally safe for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families.
