On Friday 26 May, Deniliquin High School held their annual morning tea for Indigenous parents and carers. Thank you to those who attended – it was great day.
There were several guest speakers. Adam Hansen provided information about the AIME program that Deniliquin High School proudly supports. Des Morgan, Aboriginal Police Youth Liasion Officer for Deniliquin, spoke about his role in the community and also the Indigenous basketball game and other initiatives that will be happening in our area. Debra Wray, who is the Aboriginal Wellbeing Learning Officer for the Department of Education, has been heavily involved in the MGoals initiative, which is a community-driven website that promotes Aboriginal culture and education. Deniliquin High School is now linked into this website and contributes to the Wamba Wamba & Barapa Barapa community page. Part of the MGoals initiative is a goal-setting tool to assist with PLPs.
All students at Deniliquin High School will be linked into the program in the near future. It is a great way for them to be involved, learn more about the community in which they live and learn more about the culture.Story contributed by Glen Warren from Deniliquin High School. Published in 2017.
