Our new garden was established as a continuation of student participation during Reconciliation Week 2019.
The concentric circles symbol and its representation are culturally significant to Indigenous Australians, traditionally representing a campsite, a ceremonial site or a meeting place.
The yarning circle indicates people sitting in a circle – a place reserved for honest communication and sharing of ideas, stories, celebration and information.
The pebble circles represent all of us at this school, our meeting place where we come to learn.
The new garden invites people of all ages to come in and sit on the limestone blocks to be friendly and kind and respectful to ourselves and each other. The location is also where we share stories, have yarns, offer ideas, be mindful, reflect and celebrate.
The native hibiscus plant acknowledging the historical mistreatment of Aboriginal people (Stolen Generation) is the central point.
