First Nations signage unveiled

Posted on in Junior School

If you visited the Junior School this week, you may have noticed some new eye-catching signs on display in and around our buildings.

We are pleased to now have on display our fabulous new First Nations name plaques, which were installed at the entrance of each classroom in the Junior School during the school holidays.

The new signage, which was created in celebration of our College’s connection to our First Nations people, displays the palawa kani names of native Tasmanian animals and plants.

Each class has been assigned a different name to identify with, presenting the opportunity for students to engage in activities that promote creativity, storytelling and meaningful conversations around our collective culture, heritage and history.

Groving our love of learning

St Mary's College is located on the traditional lands of the muwinina people of the South East Nation. We acknowledge and deeply respect the palawa people, the Tasmanian Aboriginal Community, and all Elders past and present. We are committed to learning alongside our students and community in this place, nipaluna, and support the continued sharing of knowledge and culture.
