MRIS student-led tours on the Nyindamurra Nature Trail were praised by a visiting school this week after students shared their traditional bush knowledge. Our Lady of the Cape Year 5 class visited MRIS to take the tour on the Nature Trail to gain an insight in how to implement their own indigenous program at their school. Teacher Adrian Torrese said “The experience was an absolute privilege. We were amazed at the MRIS students’ level of knowledge, and how calm and thoughtful their presentation was. It is obvious that MRIS students feel a strong ‘Connection to Country’—we want our students to experience this too and also care for the biodiversity of local flora and fauna near our school.”
