An Evening Movie - Beyond Sorry Print E-mail
Jamie-LeeFor evening class we watched a movie called Beyond Sorry which was based on a true story.

I’m Jamie-lee I have an indigenous background. I watched “Beyond Sorry” and it made me feel sorry for them because they got taken away from their family and they never got to learn about their aboriginal ways and it makes me feel that I want to learn about my indigenous culture. I want to learn more about my family and who they were and where they came from.

The movie was about a lady (I forgot her name). She got taken away from her family and she went back to find out who her mother was. Her mother rejected her but the more they knew each other they got along. After a while she decided to move back to where her aunty said her grandfathers’ land is and also said where he would yell off the mountain. She and her husband moved there and her husband left everything behind just so that they could live out in the desert.

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 three 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 school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai, Bidawel and Gundijmara people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campuses are 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.
