Koori Club a voice for the future

The IGS Koori Club met in Week 5 of Term 2 to discuss fresh ways of celebrating Aboriginal culture and Indigenous learning at our School.

IGS Head Girl Grace Truman and Head Boy Orlando Read attended Koori Club to listen to students’ ideas.

While IGS celebrates First Nations people in a wide range of ways, IGS Head of Indigenous Education and Stage 6 Aboriginal Studies Teacher Jade Carr said the discussion was an important step in enhancing the mutual benefits.

Some of the students’ ideas included a daily or weekly Koori Class, having an Aboriginal flag outside of the School or on the rooftop, regular workshops of language, learning the didgeridoo and weaving, as well as having a permanent space in the School to call their own, where they can work and get together.
