Our Koori Education Support Officer, Rachel Carter, will be joining us at assembly on Monday the 25th of June to share some cultural insights and to ensure that the cultural significance of this week is fully understood by the students and KPS community.

Indigenous families are invited to meet Rachel Carter after assembly for morning tea in the Library.
