We acknowledge and pay respect to the Dja Dja Wurrung People as the original and ongoing custodians of the land upon which we meet today. We commit to actively working alongside First Nation peoples for healing, reconciliation, and justice.
Marist College Bendigo is inclusive and acknowledges that we are all made in the image and likeness of God and we are created in love. People of all faiths, genders, sexualities, and cultures are therefore respected equally in our Marist community.
We acknowledge the pain and suffering of all who have been hurt in body, mind, and spirit by those who have betrayed the trust placed in them. May we all stand tall, stand firm, grounded in truth, together as one.
