Building Bonds in Kakadu

Stars has a strong focus on encouraging our students to engage actively in their education. One of the ways we do this is by building trusting relationships and encouraging participation.

Recently, ten Katherine Stars were taken on a camp to Jabiru with the aim of increasing their school attendance and developing stronger bonds with their Stars Mentors and with one another.

During the camp the girls were taken to Ubirr, one of Kakadu National Park’s most famous sites, to look at the rock art, which is considered among the best in the world.

And, of course, a trip to Ubirr would not be complete without settling down at the lookout to watch the sunset and enjoy feeling the ancient spirit and serenity of Kakadu wash over you.

The next day, the students took part in a cruise along Yellow Waters, where they learnt more about the wildlife of Kakadu and what it takes to become a tour guide.

The girls enthusiastically took part in all the activities, had a lot of fun and built important connections with each other and their Mentors. These strong relationships will support them as they continue their school education.
