As part of Reconciliation Week, we held a Reconciliation Afternoon Tea at our Kalyakoorl Ngoorndiny Boodjar (Indigenous Garden) on Tuesday, a Wear Yellow Day on Thursday with a gold coin donation (tied-in with Mabo Day) and we also ran a colouring-in competition all week. Wear Yellow Day raised just over $250! We are so proud of our wonderful community here at Lakeland Senior High School.

 

Nutha Way

Nutha Way workshop

"On Wednesday, our Indigenous students had the opportunity to work with Millennium Kids, to look at the underlying issues that lead to fare evasion, aiming to break down barriers and build relationships between young Indigenous people and PTA Transit Officers.

Nutha Way is a new program presented by Right Track that brings together local Indigenous young people, elders and community stakeholders to develop a youth-led strategy, helping young Indigenous people understand legal impacts.

Throughout the day, students designed innovative ways to solve problems, met the WA Wildlife team from Native Arc and learnt about identifying risks and risk management through a reptile handling workshop.

Once an issue was recognised within their community, students identified opportunities for change and designed solutions to overcome the problem. They worked within teams to create a series of solutions that look at Education, Behavioural Change, Design and Innovation, Community Actions and Rules and Regulations. Miss Valentine and I are extremely impressed with how our students conducted themselves throughout the day. They did Lakeland proud!"

Making a Difference Awards

Congratulations to our Student Support Officer, Ali Cope and our Year 9 Academic Coordinator/Drama Teacher, Renee Cuthbertson for each being recognised by the Department of Education with a Making a Difference Award.

Ali was recognised for making a difference in our school by building strong and nurturing relationships.

Renee has received an award for making a difference to our school community with her work in providing a voice (and safe space) for some of our most vulnerable students and her work in the area of Indigenous education.

Both Ali and Renee are very well-deserved recipients of this award as they both have a positive impact on our school.

HASS@Lakeland

The Lakeland Legal juggernaut took to the Supreme Court again last night for Round Two of the Law Societies Mock trial. After winning their first round against Willetton SHS earlier in the year, they were pitted against an eager Rockingham SHS.

Lakeland Legal took to the stand to defend their client, who, according to a Landlord, had neglected to pay rent and had accrued somewhat of a debt! Lakeland Legal worked hard on the premise that as there was no formal written agreement between the Landlord and the client, therefore their client was innocent and not liable to pay the outstanding rent. Unfortunately, the Judge didn’t see it that way and awarded the case to Rockingham by the narrowest of margins - 2.3%...Oh so close Lakeland Legal!

Well done team 👏 A fantastic effort again and hats off to Ms. Waller and Ms. Pike for giving up their time to make this happen.

Good luck for Round 3….in a few weeks.
