We were fortunate to have Wurundjeri head man, Murrundindi spend two days at our School in October. He spent time with our students from all Year levels from drawing and art with our Early Learning children, cultural leadership with our Year 5 girls, bush food sessions, to dance and digeridoo. Sharing his stories with our students and staff he transported us to his first-hand experiences of growing up as an aboriginal person and his pathway to and role as leader of the Wurundjeri people. His knowledge and inclusive and caring nature for the people, flora, fauna and this land was inspiring. Murrundindi’s visit goes hand in hand with our focus on care of each other and our land, as a community that reflects a commitment to respect culture.
His insights and stories kindled our learners’ imaginations and transformed the way they see their world and each other. We give thanks for his visit and look forward to his return at the start of our year in 2023.
