Recognising Australia’s First Peoples: Acknowledgement of Country Signs for Schools


Between National Anthem debates and proposals to move the Australia Day date, 2018 has seen Australians pondering their attitudes towards the way we celebrate our national identity. Regardless of where you stand on these topics, there’s one thing Signpac believes all Aussie schools can agree on… Acknowledgement matters.

“Acknowledgement of Country says to the world, and more importantly to ourselves, that we accept the fact we are in a place with a history and story far beyond 220 years. It says to our Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Australians that we are all in the future journey of our country together.” [1]
