We’d like to share some stories of our community and finalists:

 

Aboriginal Education 

‘Wanjoo, wanjoo kwobodak moorditj koorda. Ngalak djerabin noonook djinaniny. Ngalak warangka wanjoo.’ ‘Welcome, welcome beautiful strong friends. We are happy to see you. We sing welcome.’ As a Big Picture education school we follow the notions of ‘trust, respect and care’ and ‘one student at a time’ in a community of learners. Our families are enrolled, too, and we strive to maintain strong, safe and enduring relationships with our Aboriginal students, their carers and the wider community. We seek to counteract the grief, loss, disconnection and fragmentation that has impacted multiple generations of Noongar peoples. Since 2001 our school has worked in partnership with our Noongar community members and students to develop and renew our Aboriginal community agreement which celebrates the spirit, strength, resilience and intellect of Noongar peoples. Our Clontarf and Deadly Sista Girlz program support our students in becoming strong and proud young people, and future leaders in the community. The Indi-genius program is supporting students to explore and build their learning in STEAM, connecting traditional ways of knowing and doing with modern ways through exploring the six Noongar seasons.

School Services Staff Member of the Year

Joshua Inwood, Network Support Officer. Nominated for School Services Staff member of the year award. At Yule Brook College - Josh loves a problem! When staff or students are throwing up their hands in despair with an IT problem, Josh steps in to save the day! Josh views IT issues as opportunities to challenge himself, and although he is the youngest member of our staff he brings a wealth of knowledge to his role. Josh volunteers in the school CoderDojo program on a Saturday morning, supporting students interested in learning coding. One student said “. If it wasn’t for Josh, we wouldn’t be able to research our passions. He has knowledge he can pass on to us - he understands the tech side.” Josh takes his role of network support officer well beyond providing technical support. He makes a difference to the education of young people!
