Junior Leaders Day Out

On Wednesday 9 November a group of Year 5 and 6 students toured a variety of venues and organisations with a focus on leadership. The day included a Wildcats training session and team meeting; tour of the Western Force facilities; a visit to Parliament House hosted by Michael Sutherland, Speaker of the House; a tour of St George’s Cathedral with Reverend Richard Pengelly and a visit to the original Hale School site at Cloisters Square.

The boys also spent time in Kings Park with Neil Marshall, Coordinator of Indigenous Students. The focus of their meeting was Indigenous leadership, in particular how Indigenous leadership models traditionally defers decision making to Elders of the Tribal Group. Mr Marshall told the boys about the significance of Kings Park as a vantage point for Noongar people overlooking the Old Swan Brewery site, which Noongar people believe to be the resting place of the Wagyl - or better known as the Rainbow Serpent - who is their Spirit Ancestor and creator of the surrounding landscape. The boys also learnt of the significance of Heirisson Island to Noongar people, which was a birthing place to many Noongar women during the times when Aboriginal people weren’t allowed to use hospitals.

The boys and staff had a great day and were humbled by how giving each person and organisation were with their time, all going above and beyond to share their insights and reflections with the students. Thank you to everyone involved.
