Students in the Senior School marked Reconciliation Week both on campus and through digital learning. Some KDS students conducted interviews with a number of First Nations Peoples, including Jabiru’s Black Rock Band frontman, Richie Guymala, VCE student Zoe Walters from Alice Springs, Miki Cameron and Ben Russell (KDS mural artists and Deakin University students from Newcastle and Taree NSW respectively).
