Today, the FIRE Carriers spent the day at Amberley Centre getting to know their fellow leaders in the North Eastern Region and learn more about their role for 2017. We began our day with a traditional smoking ceremony, a welcome to country and prayer. After this, students learned more about Bunjil the Eagle and the spiritual significance of this story. We then took part in two different workshops where we decorated leaves and sticks collected from the local area and then listened to guest speaker, Dean Stewart. Dean explained many Aboriginal customs and traditions, as well the importance of language, continued education and the true meaning of the word ‘Indigenous’. It was a fantastic day and another wonderful example of our school leaders representing St Charles Borromeo with pride. Well done Gemma, Lucas, Sofia and Olivia!
