Partners Gather at the 2016 Koori Welcome Lunch
On Wednesday, 9 March, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from Wyndham College and St John Paul II Catholic College gathered at the NEP Green Skills Hub for the annual Koori Welcome Lunch!
Each year, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) Committee organises a lunch to welcome new ATSI high school students within the Nirimba Education Precinct into the program. This gave students the opportunity to meet others from each of the schools, meet the committee members and learn about the fantastic events and opportunities they will have throughout the program during their years at the Precinct.
The event was opened by Nal Wijesekeera, committee member from St John Paul II Catholic College, who also introduced the new USB Wristbands to the students. Each student received a wristband reading "Nirimba Education Precinct - Durag Land" with a USB inside containing useful information for the students. The students had a fantastic time and are looking forward to what the program offers them in the next couple of years at the Precinct!
