We have been holding NAIDOC assemblies this week to celebrate NAIDOC week.
Shontae and Scott performed a traditional dance. We had the pleasure of Jack Collard addressing students and staff with an Acknowledgment of Country.
Shontae presented the mural indigenous students painted. Shontae explained that the mural expressed her culture, and made her self aware that she has a safe place to be able to share and explore her culture. Shontae chose to paint the butterfly. In Aboriginal culture a butterfly symbolises transformation, beauty, balance and grace as well as the departed souls of her ancestors. Her people recognise the butterfly as the souls trapped inside the body. When Shontae sees a butterfly she acknowledges that it is her ancestors showing her that they are with her and that they are watching from above to guide her through life.

Last week, the Baldivis Bush Rangers Unit ventured down to Dwellingup and stayed at Nanga Bush Camp.

The camp is nestled in magnificent jarrah and marri forests, featuring many areas with impressive tall and ancient trees. Despite the very cool temperatures and wet conditions, everyone had a fantastic time! Our adventure began with a walk along the banks of the Murray River, followed by various challenging and educational activities.

Students ziplined through the forest and conquered the impressive abseil tower. Along the way, we spotted black-tailed cockatoos in the canopy and were visited by some friendly kangaroos. The team from Nearer to Nature joined us to teach us all about bushfires. We even travelled to the site of a recent bushfire to conduct some field research. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.
Congratulations to our Bushranger Cadets for representing our school well, and a special thank you to the instructors whose hard work and commitment make these unforgettable experiences possible.

If this camp sounds like something you might enjoy, you should considering joining!
Bush Rangers is open to all students from Years 7-12. We only do intakes twice a year and our next one is in Week three this term.

See Mrs Barlow in the Arts office for an expression of interest form. It is an accredited course, which means that you can earn WACE points by attending and as it is government funded, there is no cost to parents.

Today our Difference Maker students went to Affinity Village. Residents were very patient and taught students how to knit. Student got the hang of knitting and were very proud of the new skill they learnt.

Difference Makers are a group of student volunteers who are committed to ‘making a difference’ in the community within which they live. While completing community service projects, students develop real-world skills that will help them succeed in high school and beyond. They practice:
• Leadership
• Problem-solving
• Collaboration with others
• Time management
• Communication
Most importantly, students learn that through volunteering they are able to a be a positive influence in their local community and build community confidence in young people, who are often misrepresented in the media.
