NAIDOC WEEK 2020

This week Kirrawee High School celebrated NAIDOC week with some exciting activities, starting with our school Captain Hayley Smith and her twin sister Emma Smith, proud Wonnarua young women.

Emma is also the Sharks NRL Youth Ambassador, and they are pictured her with Uncle Jeff Hardy from the Clontarf Foundation and Aunt Deanna Schreiber.

On Thursday we attempted and succeeded to show the whole school at the same time, the amazing documentary In My Blood It Runs.

At the conclusion of the film, the whole school joined a zoom link to have a Q&A with one of the producers lead by Stacey Coates, a proud Wiradjuri teacher/academic.

Professor Larissa Behrendt, OA, FASSA a proud Gamilaroi/Eualeyal women attended Kirrawee High School and then went on to be the first Aboriginal woman to study law at Harvard University.

Professor Behrendt generously remembers our school and donates an annual cash prize to a recipient in year 12. ABC iview has the film and we would highly recommend watching with your family.
