Cultural Camps at St Mary’s College provide students with the opportunity to flourish outside of the classroom and demonstrate their cultural knowledge and practices. In 2021 students in Years 5 and 6 attended cultural camps in the remote Aboriginal community of Lombadina, located approximately 200 kilometres north of Broome on the Dampier Peninsula. Students participated in a range of cultural land and sea based activities. From spear making to oystering, students were encouraged to go outside their comfort zone or to do exactly what they love. Whilst on camp students slept in tents with their peers and the nature of the daily activities allowed friendships to grow and develop. St Mary’s College Cultural Camps strives to provide engaging opportunities that promotes resilience, independence and healthy risk-taking opportunities.
