Thriving People is a Catholic Education initiative for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to foster cultural knowledge and understanding from leaders within the community. Events are held for Primary and Senior students, offering them a variety of cultural activities. This year’s events at Carclew included weaving, painting, dance and music recording. These gatherings create a valuable platform for students to forge connections while also receiving guidance from significant community leaders who impart cultural wisdom and mentorship. By nurturing their understanding of identity, these experiences contribute to our students’ well-being and understanding of their place in the world.
