Learning about Indigenous Culture Print E-mail

Today we all headed down to East Cape Conran beach for our Indigenous Walk. We met up with Buzzy, Jade and Kylie to speak to them about their Aboriginal Culture. With Buzzy and Jade we spoke about how they lived when they were kids and how it has changed so much now with the racism and restrictions on what they can and can’t do now. It was really interesting to see their point of view on things. They also showed us some of the weapons they use and what they use them for.

When we spoke to Kylie she showed us some of the baskets her family had made. It was really interesting to see the detail in them and how much time and hard work had gone in to them. Kylie showed us an eel trap her mother had made, as well as some fish traps and baskets that her mother and other relatives had made. . It was really interesting to see the detail in them and how much time and hard work had gone in to them.

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) initiative offering a unique residential education experience for year nine students. The curriculum focuses on personal development and team learning projects sourced from students' home regions. There are four campuses in iconic locations across Victoria. The Alpine School Campus is located at Dinner Plain in the Victorian Alps. Snowy River Campus is near the mouth of the Snowy River at Marlo in east Gippsland. The third site is adjacent to Mount Noorat near Camperdown in Victoria’s Western District, and is called Gnurad-Gundidj. After consultation with the local aboriginal community, this name represents both the indigenous name of the local area and an interpretation of the statement "belonging to this place". Our fourth and newest campus, currently known as the Don Valley Campus is located at Don Valley, Yarra Ranges.
Our school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai and Monero-Ngarigo people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campus is built. We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their Elders past and present, and especially whose children attend our school.
