Our Year 9 and 10 Pimlico State High School Stars celebrated Indigenous Literacy Day last week by spending the morning at the Townsville City Library.
The visit was hosted by Josephine Miskin, the library’s Indigenous Resource Officer, who provided information on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and language and showed the girls how they can research family history.
Josephine also explained that the library shares a lot of information about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander topics and encouraged our young women to visit regularly and remember that reading is fun!
The visit was a fantastic opportunity for our young women to learn more about their self-identity, and the importance of being proud of culture and having respect for Elders.
All of the girls have now applied for a library card and can’t wait for their next visit!
