Western Sydney Recovery College would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.
We would like to express our gratitude that we share this land today and our sorrow for the cost of that sharing. We hope that in the spirit of reconciliation we can move forward to a place of justice, healing and partnership as we walk gently on this land.
Since 2020, WSRC have been able to offer the cultural competency workshop, Strong Social and Emotional Wellbeing, in an online format for mental health and support workers and community members. But this means we have missed the benefit of having a Welcome to Country from a local Elder, as we used to do for the course when it ran in-person.
So we thought we would take this opportunity to share a welcome and a story from Uncle Greg Simms that Blacktown City Council shared during NAIDOC Week earlier this year. Please take a couple of minutes to listen to Uncle Greg welcome you to Darug land.
Term 4 Now Open for Enrolments!
Along with Strong Social and Emotional Wellbeing, Term 4 includes workshops about mental health concerns, developing creative and self-care practices, and working on confidence and communication skills.
Some workshops are available in-person and others online.
