Kangan Institute was honoured to host the 11th Ningulabul Reconciliation Lunch at our Broadmeadows campus’ Indigenous Education Centre (IEC) on 2 June.
With approximately 60 guests in attendance, the lunch was sponsored by Kangan Institute and Hume City Council, with the support of the Broadmeadows Magistrates’ Court.
The main guest speaker was Magistrate Rose Falla, the first Indigenous Magistrate in Victoria. Guests at the event included the Mayor of Hume, representatives from Hume City Council, the Broadmeadows Magistrates’ Court, Indigenous Elders and partners of the IEC.
At the event CEO Trevor Schwenke highlighted Kangan Institute’s commitment to Indigenous education.
“We see education as one of the most important mechanisms for addressing Aboriginal disadvantage and achieving aspirations,” said Trevor.
“We have recently taken significant steps to expand and improve our indigenous education offering… input has been sought from a number of stakeholders, including our local Indigenous communities, to gain insights into the role we need to play in supporting Aboriginal education in our region into the future.”
