Aboriginal Education

Warners Bay High School has a Junior AECG who meet once per term and are involved in cultural activities both at school and off site at various locations. The school promotes inclusivity and has a strong partnership with Kumaridha Local AECG and our local primary school's cultural groups. 

Our top highlights were:

NAIDOC celebrations

NAIDOC Week celebrations were held a bit differently at Warners Bay High School this year because of COVID. Junior AECG students recorded a video about the significance of NAIDOC and the importance of this year’s theme, Always Was, Always Will Be, and the video was shown to all students during roll call. Junior AECG students then participated in activities with their year group, painting, weaving and cooking Wattleseed and Lemon Mrytle scones served with Lilli Pilli, Davison Plum and Rosella jams and fresh cream! Each students was also able to take home a pack of bush tucker spices, all beautifully decorated by our wonderful AEW. 

Possum Skin Cloak Exhibition

On Thursday 5th March, the executive from the Junior AECG, Memphis, Alex, Ben, Phoebe and Jaiden, attended the opening of the Resurgence and Bush Mechanics Exhibition at Newcastle Museum. The possum skin cloak that the Junior AECG made at the end of 2019 was chosen to be part of the exhibition. The making of the cloak was facilitated by the wonderful staff at Speaking in Colour. It was on display with cloaks from other schools and organisations. 

Sorry Day 2020

Sorry Day was commemorated using a video message this year. Junior AECG students Jaiden and Memphis spoke passionately about the impact of the Stolen Generation on families and the importance of reconciliation and acknowledging of the past. The video was shown to all students during roll call. 

Aboriginal Education Worker

In 2020 we were blessed to be able to employ our first ever Aboriginal Education Worker, Kalina Kelly. She is a proud woman of the Dunghutti and Biripi Nations, has lived in Newcastle her whole life but her family come from Kempsey and Taree way. Kalina supported our students during this challenging year by organising cultural activities and mentoring them.

Student Success

One of our Aboriginal students was successful in her application for a NSW P&C Federation Secondary Scholarship. This scholarship will support her continuing education and enable her to access resources and support through until the HSC. It is a prestigious award and winning the scholarship is a significant achievement.
