Education and Well-being Day – Wesley College

Education and Well-being Day – Wesley College

25 July 2022

On Monday July 25th, MADALAH staff spent the morning at Gloucester Park facilitating another wonderful Education & Well-being Day for our Wesley College scholars!

The first session of the day was presented by Des Headland and Janelle Campbell-Cooke. Des, an Indigenous ex-AFL player who is seen as a role model to many of the boys helped provide a comfortable space for the boys to speak about and engage in meaningful conversations on social and emotional well-being. Our career pathway session followed on from this session where MADALAH staff provided students with information on our Year 13 Program and what we can do to assist them post-secondary school.

After lunch, the boys headed out into the middle of the racetrack to participate in a game of Buroinjin, which was their favourite part of the day!

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.
