Our Place

Our story and our formation lay upon the richness of Reservoir. Reservoir sits upon Wurundjeri country, which covers most of the area now known as greater Melbourne and includes the City of Darebin.

 

The family group most likely to have lived on the land now known as the City of Darebin is the Wurundjeri Willam clan, whose Ngurungaeta was Billebillary. This land may have also been used by the Bebejan family group, as they were based around the Heidelberg area.

Water is a significant symbol within our history and symbolic within our schools. In 1864 the reservoir which would later provide inspiration for the suburb's name was built on the Yan Yean pipeline which carried water into Melbourne. 2 others were built in 1909 and 1913.

Reservoir is known for strengths - strengths of identity, tradition, welcome, diversity, open hearted, abundance of produce and pride. These strengths weave through ‘our place’ - our place of reservoir.
