The Learning Stone initiative creates a place for collaboration between school and community groups to build stronger ties and greater awareness of local indigenous culture.
An identified place for cultural engagement, ceremony and instruction.
“This initiative will assist the koori community of the Bass Coast and South Gippsland Shire to feel welcomed, supported and that their culture is embraced in our schools and early childhood facilities, and that it will also act as a catalyst to spark the nonindigenous community to seek to learn and understand more about local indigenous culture.”
Assistant Regional Director – Operations Department of Education and Early Childhood Development Gippsland Region
“Learning Stones are experts at creating cultural meeting places… if you’re in Victoria check them out.”
