Thriving People Youth Forum – Whyalla August 19th, 2019


On Monday August 19 , 23 Secondary Aboriginal students from St Mark’s College, Caritas College and Samaritan College  gathered in Whyalla to get to know each other, to talk together about their understanding of Catholic Education SA aspirations for young people as thriving people, capable learners and leaders in our schools, communities and the world.

The students described how important family is to their wellbeing and about their strong connection to country and Aboriginal culture. They shared their hopes for reconciliation and for all Australians to know the shared history of Australia and to find new and ongoing ways of walking together.

The students’ thoughts and ideas were represented on a 5 metre canvas by Aboriginal artist Chris Crebbin and illustrator Georgina Chadderton.

School leaders and Catholic Education staff facilitated the forum and invited guest Director of the Port Pirie Diocese of Catholic Education, Mrs Nichii Marden shared her leadership journey and connection with the Northern region of SA with the students.


Eastern Ranges Choir


The 6/7 students from St James Catholic School, Jamestown participated in the East of the Ranges choir on 3rd September 2019. The choir is made up of students from primary schools in the mid north area; they learn the Primary Schools Music Festival songs in their own schools and then come together for combined rehearsals and then for their gala performance concert at the Northern Festival Centre. There is a lot of work and learning and preparation and it is certainly worth it on the night.
