We had:

Stephen Ley, Head Teacher VET/Careers adviser at Callaghan College Jesmond Senior Campus, talking about Cultural connection in schools driving Aboriginal students to complete HSC. He is joined by Haylee Mills, who graduated from year 12 in 2020, who said the cultural opportunities offered at Callaghan College Jesmond Senior Campus transformed her relationship with school. “I never really came to school, I was never interested and had no motivation to stay in school or anything like that,” she said. “Coming into Jesmond, I started getting into cultural dance, artwork and learning how to tell stories.” Finding her passion in expressing her culture artistically, Haylee said, helped her realise how important education is.

Dizzy Doolan, Indigenous hip-hop artist talking about her show this Friday the 5th of November at the Tanks Arts Centre. Tickets can be bought here:…/dizzy-doolan-and-kaweyova
