Penrhos College – 2023 RAP Committee Launch

Penrhos College – 2023 RAP Committee Launch

15 December 2022

MADALAH staff were recently invited to attend Penrhos College’s RAP Committee Launch.

This gathering was opened with a beautiful Welcome to Country from Wadjuk and Ballardong Elder Sandra Hebern (Collard). This was then followed by the Principal’s speech which included a big thank you to MADALAH Staff and Mentors for supporting scholars and creating a safe space for students to engage in cultural conversations through our mentoring sessions.

Our MADALAH scholars received an Indigenous Flag pin each which they will all wear proudly on their blazers.

We would like to say a huge congratulations to our Penrhos leader Jilaya Collard who was awarded First Nations RAP Captain and presented an inspiring speech to the group. Jilaya always shows such great leadership skills and we can’t wait to see how her passion and positivity will help her thrive in this important role.

Huge Congratulations to Talicia Griffin for designing the RAP booklet cover representing the Stolen Generation with such an amazing design!

We are ever so proud of our girls for striving so well! We can’t wait to see what the RAP committee achieve next 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.
