Victoria Point State High School acknowledges the Noonuccal, Goorumpal and Ngugi people who are the traditional Owners and Custodians of the land on which the school stands.
At Victoria Point State High School we promote the development of respectful relationships between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous students, staff, parents/carers and the wider community. Our overall goal for Indigenous education within our school is to improve the educational outcomes and experiences of Indigenous students, to raise cultural awareness amongst staff and students and to develop policies and curriculum that is cross culturally inclusive, innovative and integrated.
