We would like to acknowledge this land that we meet on today which is the traditional land for Kaurna people, and that we respect their spiritual relationships with their country. We would like to acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the lands and waters of the Adelaide region, on which we meet today.

On a beautiful Thursday morning to begin a new school year, the whole school gathered on Girdelstone Oval for an Acknowledgment of Country and Smoking Ceremony conducted by Aboriginal leader Uncle John Lochowiak. The Smoking Ceremony cleansed our community and gave us a pathway for a safe, successful and less interrupted year. We thank Uncle John for his continued involvement with St Peter’s College.
