Our RAP leadership group and a group of interested students across the School got creative this week by designing a mural for our Reconciliation Garden space. They worked with Iteka Sanderson-Bromley from Kumarninthi, who educated the children on First Nations artwork. Following over an hour of cultural exchange, fruitful discussion, questioning, and artistic inquiry, the students designed our new mural. The mural design is a wonderful example of the children’s sense of place, community, and belonging at St Andrew’s School and a great addition to our commitment and journey towards reconciliation.

Tjimari Sanderson-Milera from Kumarninthi will paint the mural, and we can’t wait to see the results. Kumarninthi means Becoming One in the Kaurna language. It is an organization that offers cultural education across many aspects and is founded by Tjimari Sanderson-Milera.

We strive to share the knowledge, beauty, and significance of Aboriginal culture with the wider community, with a strong emphasis on educating children. For more information about Kumarninthi and their cultural education programs, please visit their website: https://kumarninthi.com.au.
