Colac Aboriginal Gathering PlaceNovember 6, 2017
On Friday the 3rd of November, Victorian Group Training and some of 2017 Certificate III Education Support trainees and their trainer, Liz Collins attended the official opening of the Colac Aboriginal Gathering Place at 4 Miller Street.
It was a great experience to be involved in this important community event, as this facility will provide a safe gathering place for people to congregate and interact with each other.
Attending this ceremony will certainly help the trainees with their training modules that are focused on Indigenous education in our communities.
The trainees as part of their qualification, will now have the chance to follow up and meet with Elders of the Wathaurong Community and ask direct questions in relation to issues that Aboriginal people face in the education sector, and how to deal with some of these.
