Acknowledgement of Country
Friends of the Box Ironbark Forests would like to acknowledge the elders of the Dja Dja Wurrung community and their forebears as the traditional owners of Country in the Mount Alexander Region. We recognise that the Dja Dja Wurrung people have been custodians of this land for many centuries and have performed age old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal on their land. We acknowledge their living culture and their unique role in the life of this region.
FOBIF is excited to announce that we have been successful in our Mount Alexander Shire Council Community Grant application which will fund the FOBIF 2016 Winter School Holiday Program.
This year has an indigenous peoples theme and we will be working with local Aboriginal people and presenters to develop three, two hour sessions for local primary school age children. The program will be held at the Fryerstown School in the first week of the June school holidays from Monday 27th June – Friday 1st July.
FOBIF gratefully acknowledges this support from council and volunteer organisers are so pleased to be creating a platform for education which celebrates local Aboriginal culture.
Look out for booking information closer to the end of June on the FOBIF website.
