|Mirragin Moments: Year 7 Welcome - 07 March 2017|
What a wonderful start to the school year it’s been for Mirragin, our LHC Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
Last week at our Mirragin meeting, we welcomed four new Year 7 students to the Mirragin program: Bella Hughes, Tilea Lloyd-Webb, Marley Thurgate and Ella Wimbus.
Aunty Joan, our beloved Elder-in-Residence, spoke about the importance of community and connection and welcomed the girls with a traditional water blessing. They were then each presented with their Mirragin badges, which are symbols of their membership of this special community within LHC.
Congratulations must also go to Year 12 student, Grace Sarra, who has been selected as the 2017 Mirragin Captain. Dr Judy Beausang, our new Head of Faculty for Differentiated Learning, recently presented Grace with her leadership badge, which I know she will wear with pride.
We look forward to another busy year ahead, continuing our reconciliation journey with courage and kindness.
