The November 2020 issue of The Triangle is online and ready to read now, or you can pick up a paper copy from your local distribution point. Editorial by Rosemary Beaumont What a good job our teachers and local schools are doing. In Bermagui the local Indigenous language, Dhurga – the language grown out of millennia of embedded connection with this land that we are privileged to live on – is being shared with the children, shaping their perceptions of the world around them. There are plans to spread the pride, culture and wisdom. Many of Cobargo’s school children and staff were directly impacted by the Black Summer fires. Their resilience, care and strength are a beacon of inspiration. The ongoing generosity of many organisations and individuals who continue to stand with and support those still in the wake of lifechanging experiences is also inspirational. The teachers have creatively integrated the gifts and activities to consolidate basic educational aims such as literacy, as well as more fundamental life lessons of resilience, interconnection, reciprocity and care for each other, their families and community. The way the school community has responded to traumatic experience offers a model for times of transition, recovery and creatively applied learning. The words of Cobargo School’s Principal, Gillian Parkes, sum up this positive direction – ‘We have a strong sense of community and a strong bond to look after each other and support growth and resilience as we take on life’s journey and learn new things each day!’ Pick up a copy at your post office, petrol station, library or 777, or read a colour version online here.
