Indigenous Mentoring

 IMG_0503.jpg

Marymount College has a comprehensive Indigenous Program dedicated to the advocacy and support of those students who identify as being of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent.  The Program, under the guidance of Mentor Teacher Miss Lauren Mitchell, provides educational and pastoral support, cultural enrichment and career pathway advice.
 
The students are a close-knit group who call themselves the Marymount (MMC) Mob and offer one another genuine support through their Peer Mentor program.  The MMC Mob also interact regularly with the Indigenous students of Marymount Primary School, forging strong bonds that have proven to be invaluable in helping these students have a smooth transition to high school.  
 
If any students or parents would like more information about Marymount College’s Indigenous Program, please contact Miss Mitchell lamitchell@marymount.qld.edu.au
