A warm welcome

Bush tucker was on offer in the Peace Garden earlier this week when Armani Carr of Year 4 welcomed Koori Club afternoon tea guests, paying respects to the Gadigal people of the Eora nation.

“I hope you tread lightly on the land and take a moment to acknowledge and respect Aboriginal culture as you continue your education journey here today,” Armani said.

Among the guests were our Kindergarten 2019 Indigenous Scholars.

Deputy Principal Students and Campus Life Mary Duma welcomed the new scholars into the IGS family “under the wonderful leadership of Academic Mentor – Indigenous Students (Preschool to Year 12) Jade Carr”.

Head Girl Mi-kaisha Masella presented both Scholars with Possum Magic by Mem Fox.

The event was catered by the National Centre for Indigenous Excellence, and included kangaroo pies, macadamia and frangipani cake, wattleseed scones, fresh fruit and more.
