We have decided to create this page as a platform to share news and education opportunities for our Aboriginal
and Torres Strait Islanders Community. Meridan State College Indigenous Community gathers together at least once a term to discuss our jarjums; how they are going at school, upcoming culture programs, share new ideas and general need to know news to keep us all up to date (including scholarships, jobs and other opportunities).
All members are encouraged to share their voice and attend meetings.
A follow up email will be always sent to share the main agenda items for those that can't make it.
Every Tuesday afternoon our Deadly Leader's meet with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Primary students and share culture knowledge, yarning, stories and circle work.
They spend time mentoring the young ones and doing simple educational activities together.
This time is special and all come away feeling enriched and connected.
Meet our 2021 Deadly Leaders Team:
Taylah G - Year 6
Kaiden W - Year 8
Tahla H - Year 9
Casey G - Year 11
Riley Y- Year 12
