Cross Cultural Competency Professional Learning for St Hilda’s Staff

Cross Cultural Competency Professional Learning for St Hilda’s Staff

3 February 2021

On Friday 22nd January, Andrew Beck on behalf of MADALAH facilitated our first Cross Cultural Competency session for 2021 with the staff at St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls. The two hour session delivered by Andrew explored Aboriginal perspectives in education and boarding, strategies for better engagement and cultural practices. Staff found the session to be extremely valuable and insightful, taking away a whole new awareness of Indigenous culture.

We are proud to be kickstarting St Hilda’s Indigenous program and equipping them with the knowledge and skills to successfully support our 11 girls who we have placed there on scholarship. We look forward to watching each of these girls blossom throughout the coming year!

Acknowledgement of Country

MADALAH acknowledges and pays tribute to the Whadjuk Noongar, the Traditional Custodians of the Lands on which we work, and we pay our respects to their Elders – past, present and emerging. This acknowledgement extends to the First Peoples’ land across the state of Western Australia which is home to the many students that we support.

MADALAH recognises and values the continuity of cultural, educational and spiritual practices of First Peoples.

We wish to advise our First Peoples that this site may contain the names, images or audio-visual recordings of people who have passed.
