As part of the Healthy Lifestyles pillar of the Stars plan, our girls at Thuringowa State High School in Townsville completed an eight-week cooking and nutrition program, Tukka Tools, provided by Diabetes Queensland.
Tukka Tools was adapted from the Need for Feed program by the Cape York Health Council and is specifically designed to suit the needs of Indigenous high school students in Queensland.
National Reconciliation Week 2018 was celebrated in style at Nhulunbuy High School yesterday, with our Stars hosting a barbeque and opening the program room to the rest of the school.
In keeping with this year’s theme – ‘Don’t Keep History A Mystery’ – the girls worked together to create a display of posters featuring Indigenous stories and facts, as well as works showing the traditional Yolngu names of some of the stunning natural scenery across East Arnhem Land.
East Arnhem Super Star, Siena Stubbs (pictured here with her big sister and Yirrkala Stars Mentor, Rosie), held her very first book signing as a published author in Yirrkala recently.
Our Birds – |ilimurru\gu W^yin Malanynha is a beautiful collection of Siena’s photographs of the birds native to her home in East Arnhem Land, with each bird introduced in Siena’s traditional language, Yolngu Matha, as well as English.
