Deadly Wiyanga and Gulyangarri


We routinely measure height and weight in all children as part of a child’s health assessment.


‘Wiyanga’ is the Dharug word for mother and ‘Gulyangarri’ is the Dharug word for children and 'Deadly' in the context of 'Deadly Wiyanga and Gulyangarri' means excellent or awesome.

We work from the Aboriginal definition of health.

"Aboriginal health means not just the physical wellbeing of an individual but refers to the social, emotional and cultural wellbeing of the whole community in which each individual is able to achieve their full potential as a human being, thereby bringing about the total wellbeing of their community…"

We treat Aboriginal people holistically.
