The Community Languages Schools Program
Nurtures cultural and linguistic diversity
Strengthens family bonds through shared language
Supports pride in ethnic identity
Hunter Community Languages respectfully acknowledges the Awabakal people as the Traditional Custodians of the land where our office is located and upon which many of our member schools meet. We acknowledge that this beautiful country has been cared for by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for over sixty thousand years.
We give thanks to elders past, present and future.
