On Wednesday, 23 March 2022, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at the College engaged in the first MADALAH Mentoring session for 2022.
This session focused on cultural connections and further explored how our students maintain connection to culture. Students shared that they connect to their cultural spirituality through art, dancing, music, going out on Country, yarning with mob, participating in the MADALAH mentoring sessions and meeting as a group with Brooke (Aboriginal Liaison Officer) at the College.
