Last week, Year 12 students were invited to gather and explore issues around the Referendum. The session presented by Uncle Charles Pakana gave insights into both the Yes and No positions, allowing our students to consider all the information and make their own decisions. Here is a student reflection:

‘The Referendum Yarn was an insightful experience that really deepened my understanding of what the First Nations Voice to Parliament Referendum means and how it would impact Indigenous Australians. Uncle Charles was well-informed and provided detailed information, which should ultimately assist all of us in our votes. The experience was invaluable, and I am very thankful for the opportunity to listen and learn from someone who has a sound understanding of not only the impact but also the importance of this Referendum. Furthermore, being able to ask questions was a great chance to gain more knowledge on the topic and encourage us to consider the reliability of our sources of information. I’m so thankful to be a part of this discussion.’ Ella P (12MMWI)
