Being Brave. Making Change.
During Reconciliation Week, Woodleigh students, staff and families come together to celebrate Australia's First Nations People, their teachings, history and our shared future.
This year we welcomed Stolen Generation Survivor and proud Boonwurrung, Mutti Mutti and Yorta Yorta woman, Eva Jo Edwards, to share her stories. Monica Weightman, a Murri woman from Townsville, sang songs and told tales across all our campuses, and, on Wednesday night, we launched Woodleigh's Reconciliation Action Plan. This document brings together all we do to further reconciliation across our three campuses and beyond and creates a roadmap for our future efforts. Year 11 student Nia Charlesworth spoke powerfully about her and her family's history and the significance of our school's commitment to reconciliation. There is a definite mood for change, and Woodleigh is proud of our commitment to reconciliation and shared understanding of First Nation's history, culture, teachings and practices.
