​Acknowledgement of Country 

Jingeri, 

Helensvale State High School as one community, acknowledges the Kombumerri Peoples, the Traditional Custodians of the land on which our school is built.  We respect their long history, ancestry and culture.  We pay our respects to the Elders, past, present and emerging for they carry the memories and traditions of past times. 

We would also like to extend our acknowledgment to other First Nations Peoples: those hailing from the Torres Strait Islands and those belonging to other Aboriginal Language Groups.

We acknowledge the strength and resilience of Kombumerri peoples.  We respect their enduring connection to the local wetlands and the cultural responsibility they uphold to preserve wildlife.  Together, we go forward, learning in the spirit of these values.

Bullang Jarjums (Strong Children) 

screen-front-view-cropped.jpg 

This screen art is an original art piece designed by our very own Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. Using traditional symbols it tells a story about our school community coming together as one. The pathways intertwine through the artwork to meet in a central meeting place, the Yarning Circle. The Indigenous community (the left hand side panels) gather together with our teaching community (right hand panels) to work together to share knowledge, educate and walk alongside our Jarjums.
