Bayswater Primary School acknowledges the Wurundjeri People, the Traditional Owners of the land on which the school stands, and pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.We strive to deliver excellence in outcomes and service for every child and every learner.
The Wurundjeri People take their name from the Woiwurrung language word ‘wurun’ meaning the Manna Gum (Eucalyptus viminalis) which is common along ‘Birrarung’ (Yarra River), and ‘djeri‘, the grub which is found in or near the tree. Wurundjeri are the ‘Witchetty Grub People’ and our Ancestors have lived on this land for millennia.For more information visit https://www.wurundjeri.com.au Marrung is a strategy to ensure that all Koorie Victorians achieve their learning aspirations.Through Marrung, Bayswater Primary School aims to create a positive climate for learning and development where we demonstrate the highest levels of respect and inclusion and, as a result, Koorie children and learners of all ages feel strong in their identity.https://www.education.vic.gov.au/about/programs/Pages/marrung.aspx
