Greetings from the Northern Territory!

Yes, a team of us are at Wugularr, Beswick community. I write this Letter Home while watching our Year 6 students interacting with their Wugularr friends. It is 5pm and time for some delightful after-school play including hide and seek, quiet relaxation, showing Wugularr kids our camp along with Wugularr kids telling our kids about the bush food on the trees that bring beautiful shade to our delightful camping place at Djilpin Arts.

While in the NT, we experience the diversity of our vast land. While you’re snuggled up in front of fireplaces, we’re sitting under the stars of the superb balmy nights. All children have made incredible friendships and experienced an incredible welcome from this community.

We will be returning this week with lots of news to share. Our Year 3 and 4 children are the next to go on camp – all experiences that build relationships, connecting to our personal growth and understanding for both staff and children as we all learn from each other.

This is a short Letter Home; however, the photos tell the story of this incredible collaboration – Wugubank! We are so pleased that we are now meeting again to share our worlds. We look forward to the Wugularr children visiting Penbank as soon as possible.

I thank the staff back at school for looking after all children and colleagues. I especially thank Katherine and Justin for leading the Penbank Campus and and to Tessa for for her leadership of anything admin.

My very best wishes to you all,

VIVIENNE and the Wugubank team, 2022
