Over the holidays we were hard at work building a Yarning Circle to complement our Aboriginal programme.
The Yarning Circle is a place where everyone can learn as a collective group, build respectful relationships, and preserve and pass on cultural knowledge.
By using a yarning circle as a teaching space, participants' understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge and ways of working are enhanced and all students grow through these meaningful learning experiences.
We are very grateful to our generous supporters who made the project possible, including the thirteen volunteers from the Bank of America and the BushLink team; and Plateau Trees, Australian Native Landscapes and Kennards Hire who assisted with raw materials and equipment hire. The Yarning Circle grant was given by the Northern Beaches Council as one of their Community, Arts and Culture Grants and also from a fundraiser held by Aboriginal Support Group Manly Warringah .
