ABORIGINAL LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
The Links to Learning ‘Aboriginal Leadership Program’ has had a successful term with year 7 girls from Chifley College Dunheved Campus. We focused on building their capacity to lead and
mentor within their school and community while learning about Aboriginal culture.
On the 31St August they had the opportunity to develop skills and learn about their Aboriginal culture by having an outing to Muru Mittigar Aboriginal Cultural Centre. They spent the day learning how to throw a boomerang and exploring the garden learning about different remedies and food that each plant provides. The group also had a culture talk discussing the customs of their Aboriginal culture. They girls enjoyed the day with one saying that ‘they had a really good day’ and another saying ‘they
enjoyed the plant session and learning more about their culture’.
