River of Learning 10th Anniversary 2019

Ten Years of Learning and Inclusivity at Maclean High School 2019

The tenth River of Learning Celebration Day was held at Maclean High School on Wednesday 29th May. Student’s art works were displayed at the Yamba Museum featuring the ‘River to the Sea’ theme.

Such an event would not be possible without the hard work of many people over several weeks to get things running smoothly. Firstly, a thank you to the Elders: Uncle Ron, Aunty Glenda, Aunty Rosie and Aunty Beris who accompanied the students on the Cultural Tours in Term 1. The school would like to thank Dee- Anne Kapeen and Dean Loadsman for working with the students and to the Yamba Historical Society for setting up the exhibition and collating all the artwork. Special thanks to Rhonda Pitson, previous Deputy Principal at Maclean High School, whose inspirational idea has become the River of Learning Celebration Day.

Lastly, such an event would not have been possible without the enormous effort, drive and commitment shown by our Aboriginal Education workers, who led and co-ordinated all the projects on the day such as dance, music, language, art, consultancy and logistics. They have also encouraged and inspired our students to ‘get out there and celebrate their culture’.  A big thank you to Sam Kapeen, Anjanette Warburton, Krystal Randall and Deborah Breckenridge. They are such tremendous role models for all our students.
