Groote Eylandt mother and daughter day
Angurugu School has celebrated its first Mother and Daughter Day, a 7 June event attended by girls from years 4 to 12, and women from their immediate families.
Assistant principal Paul Riches said the occasion was a reward for students’ attendance at school, and an opportunity to encourage “even greater attendance and commitment to their studies”.
“The Mother and Daughter Day is part of an attendance and engagement plan devised at a Darwin meeting with Vicki Baylis,” he said.
“The 30 participants had a fantastic day, chatting and laughing over an amazing spread of food at Groote Eylandt Lodge, before enjoying activities ranging from swimming, games, competitions and presentations.”
