Leila Gurruwiwi & Helen Christensen Supporting Indigenous Students at MACS

ON TRACK is a program that outlines how youth were able to stay on track with their education. In this program specialist journalist Hayley McAdam speaks with Helen Christensen and Leila Gurruwiwi who work as the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Education Officers with Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools (MACS).

They work along side each other to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and staff and also assist schools to become more culturally aware. Helen and Leila talk about how they were able to help students during lockdown with remote learning and their own personal experiences with returning to work post lockdown and how that transition has been for the students.
