Late last week a group of 19 students representing our College and St Bede’s College participated in an enlightening Indigenous Immersion. The primary objective of this camp was to strengthen our commitment to Reconciliation and establish a more profound bond with the local Indigenous community. The immersive three-day experience, held in Balnarring, exposed the students to various facets of Indigenous culture, including art, history, music, food, bush medicine and archaeological exploration of the local region. Led by knowledgeable Bunurong elder, Indigenous artist and archaeologist, Adam Magennis, the students were guided through a series of cultural activities that fostered a profound connection to the land and heightened their appreciation for the significance of belonging to country. Through guided walks along the foreshore areas of Balnarring and Shoreham, the students gained a deeper understanding of the unique plants and trees essential for sustaining members of the Bunurong communities. A highlight for the group was cooking with Aunty Carla who conducted a cooking class preparing delicious damper infused with Indigenous herbs. An experience that will never be forgotten!
