Worimi! – Hello (Darug)

This Service resides on the traditional land of the Darug people. The Darug people occupied the Dundas area for thousands of years, and the remains of animal bones, charcoal drawings and camps have been found in the area.

It is important, as OSHC professionals to understand the land where live and work and to share our knowledge with the children at our Service, just as the traditional owners would pass down information and educate the younger generation through stories.
