Our Commitment to Culture

We sincerely thank our Custodians and our Teachers. 

Brewongle is a Dharug Aboriginal word that we think is derived from the local Boorooberongal Clan of the Dharug People who cared for this land of mighty rivers, lagoons, giant blue gums, forests and verdent plains. A rich country with the rugged Blue Mountains to the west, Cumberland Plain to the south and endless sandstone ridges and rainforest gullys to the north. A land of kangaroo (booroo), possum and koala, of eels, ducks and fish, of goanna, sea eagles and black cockatoos. We acknowledge and pay tribute to the giants of sustainability, The Dharug People. 

Wherever possible, local Indigenous knowledge is incorporated into Brewongle programs. Our strong connections with local Elders and Community help us to deliver meaningful, accurate and current culture. Whether through traditional storytelling, games and ways of learning, making a traditional canoe or learning about local bush resources, Dharug Culture is woven through curriculum at Brewongle. These connections and more enable us to deliver highly regarded teacher professional learning courses.
