Our Nhulunbuy Year 12 Stars returned home from their end-of-year celebration trip to the Gold Coast with vibrant memories and much excitement about the future.
A highlight was a visit to the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) for a tour with Indigenous student mentors from the Oodgeroo Unit, the University’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student success unit, which provides admission pathways and support for Indigenous people.
Our Year 9 Heatley Stars have reflected on a big year with a Wellbeing Afternoon, where they had lots of fun kayaking together and then enjoyed a relaxed dinner at a local restaurant.
During their meal, the group had a yarn with their Mentors about the highlights of the year – many of which were Stars activities and camps, where they were given the opportunity to do things they hadn’t done before.
2019 has been a huge year of development and change for our Year 9s and it’s been such a pleasure for us to watch them grow into strong, determined young women who always keep in mind the Stars Values – Respect, Honesty, Commitment and Pride.
