Change Making Communities
Underpinning everything we do at Digital Schools is a deep desire to create positive change in the world. Whilst we look like a website company, we are more than that. We are an education company that uses websites as a tool to help you share positive, inspiring and educational messages with the world.
Acknowledgment of Country
Digital Schools would like to acknowledge that we live, work, learn and play on the lands of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's – who are the oldest continuing culture in human history and the traditional owners of the land we now call Australia. We acknowledge the wisdom and diversity of these people and seek to learn from and be inspired by their culture. We are grateful for the dignity they show us in allowing us to share this land with them. Our pledge is to continue to work to bring more awareness to topics that the elders past, present and emerging bring our attention to and take meaningful action to create positive change here in Australia and the wider world.
