Mogo Gains New Yarning Circle

Member for Gilmore, Fiona Phillips MP joined with the Mogo school community, local Aboriginal elders and community members to officially open the new Yarning Circle at Mogo Public School, thanks to $15,000 under the Local Schools Community Fund.

“This fantastic new yarning circle will help to create an inclusive and healing space for our kids and connect them with the local indigenous culture,” Fiona Phillips said.

“Mogo Public School has had an incredibly tough year after being severely impacted by the bushfires. The recovery process is still ongoing for everyone in Mogo and this project is another important step.”

“I am thrilled to see the yarning circle finally coming to life thanks to this grant,” she said.

Mrs Phillips said it was particularly heartening to see members from the local business community who had provided goods and services towards the project attend today’s opening, in a true show of community spirit.

“Our school communities – teachers, principals, parents and students – have experienced a year like never before with the bushfires, floods and COVID-19, but they have shown incredible resilience and I am simply delighted to provide this much-needed support,” Fiona Phillips said.

The Local Schools Community Fund provides grants of between $1,000 and $20,000 to local schools for projects which benefit students and the school community. Schools across the Gilmore electorate have received $200,000 towards great projects like this one with Fiona Phillips’ support.
