Goals for living and learning

The good work that The Burraga Foundation is doing was further highlighted by a visit from the Governor General of New South Wales, David Hurley accompanied by his wife, Mrs Hurley at Tathra Public School.

It was an uplifting day with local Elder Uncle Graham Moore performing a traditional welcome in language and a smoking ceremony for the Governor General and Mrs Hurley. Uncle Graham Moore also kindly showed everyone around the school grounds, highlighting bush tucker and the newly created storytelling circle.

The esteemed visitors then saw MGoals in practice, with Margaret Taylor, a teacher at the school conducting a goal setting conversation with Gjumurrah, a Year 5 student.

Gjumurrah impressed everyone with her ability to demonstrate her goals and aspirations. She received enthusiastic support from both the Governor General and Mrs Hurley, further motivating her to achieve her goal.
