On Friday 7 September under the lights of Luna Park, Tanaya, Summer and Kaleena, our three Year 12 Indigenous students, celebrated their Year 12 graduation with the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation (AIEF). This amazing event was an opportunity for Year 12 AIEF students from all over Australia to come together and talk about the ups and downs of boarding school, and to celebrate their friends and milestones. It also gave an opportunity to speak with Alumni and to hear of their inspirational adventures after school. For Tanaya, Summer and Kaleena the event recognised the resilience and tenacity they applied to overcome their homesickness and cultural barriers to finish Year 12. It also gave them a taste of what they can go on to achieve. Watch this space.
