Yarning circle opens with smoking ceremony
Umina Beach Public School's Literacy Yarning Circle has been officially opened with an aboriginal smoking ceremony.
Students designed and worked on the construction of this area of the playground during 2016.
"This area of our school demonstrates what can be achieved when we all work together," said principal Ms Lyn Davis.
"The P and C obtained a grant from council which was used to fund some of the work that was undertaken.
"They also sought sponsorship from our local hardware store who provided the sleepers for the retaining wall.
"Everglades Country Club provided a cash grant which was used in creating this space.
"The Literacy Yarning Circle is a genuine community project and the children at the school will benefit from this project for years to come," Ms Davis said.
