Sorry Day

IMG_0086

We acknowledged Sorry Day yesterday by decorating hands and hanging them up in our nature lounge.  Sorry Day pays tribute to the Stolen Generations and their families and commemorates the 20th anniversary of the Bringing Them Home Report.

Every Aboriginal family in Australia today has been affected by past government policies that sought to assimilate and destroy culture. National Sorry Day is a time for us to come together to acknowledge the devastation caused to families, communities and clans; to remember the Stolen Generations who have passed onto the Dreaming and to pay tribute to all the Stolen Generations across the nation who still survive today.

Hammertime

For the past two weeks all the junior and middle girls have been busy hammering away at the Marist Youth Centre as part of a community wood-working course. Kim from Handy Girl Australia runs Hammertime, a Brunswick women’s woodworking collective that encourages females to pick up power tools and make things, repair things, and learn new skills. The students loved the opportunity and created some impressive range of pieces such as stools, planter boxes, picture frames and a cheese board. Thanks Kim and thanks Marist Youth Centre!

Cypher

‘Language isn’t just about words’ was the take-home message for our students who experienced ‘Cypher’ at the Arts Centre recently.
They were totally blown away by the performance of three super-skilled world class b-boys who battled it out over hip-hop moves in a frenzy of raw energy.
Some of the bravest spectators jumped in the middle and challenged the b-boys, dropping some impressive moves in the cypher circle.
Q+A was just as captivating as the b-boys shared their dancing journeys with the audience and inspired others to get involved.
It was raw, it was real, it was visibly intoxicating, and best of all it was loved by all our students.
