Senior students interview Stolen Generations

IGS thanks Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation for welcoming Year 11 and 12 students researching the Stolen Generations.

Five Year 11 and 12 students had a life-changing opportunity by being able to visit the Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation at Waterloo.

During their time there the students were able to speak to Grant Sarra and Uncle Bobby Young, who provided them with first-hand information about the truth of the Stolen Generations.

The students deeply valued the opportunity to go beyond textbooks and meet individuals who were stolen from their parents from the age of three and raised at the Kinchela Boys Home where they were poorly treated.

The students, researching their Aboriginal Studies major works, asked detailed questions about intergenerational trauma, Aboriginal people’s relationship with the environment and Aboriginal spirituality.

A huge thank you to Grant Sarra and Uncle Bobby Young who have given their time to educate our next generation of IGS students, sharing details of their own life journeys.
