What is your favourite memory from school?

Going on an excursion to the Brisbane Exhibition (EKKA) as part of my Home Economic class to see all the produce and displays.

Looking back, what would you tell your younger self about going to school?

That I am grateful that I had the opportunity to go to school and learn and be able to have the knowledge that I have through my education and also grateful for the knowledge I have of my community and culture through my first teacher - my mother. One thing I would tell my younger self if I had the chance would be to go all the way and complete year 12.

What do you think is the most important thing we can teach future generations?

That education and cultural identity are very important and without them both life can be very complicated.
