Celebration of culture was a highlight of term 3 at NRL Cowboys House, as students balanced school and career transitions with the festivities of NAIDOC Day and traditional dance performances.
House dance troupes hit the road for the first time to perform at Cairns Festival, teaming up with Miriki Performing Arts for a special premiere of Seed of Destiny before returning home to take part in the second annual NAIDOC Day celebrations.
Students and visiting guests took to the stage to thrill the crowd of family and friends with dance performances under this year’s NAIDOC theme, Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!
Term 3 also saw important milestones on the education journey being ticked off for many of the students from 23 remote communities.
A section of our inspirational Year 12 students graduated from the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Foundation Scholarship Program supporting students working towards their QCE, and were presented with their certificates at James Cook University, marking the first official step in finishing their secondary education.
With the end of the year now in sight, students will be working towards a strong finish and achieving the best results they can in term four!
