Student advocate shares story with ABC


Catherine McAuley Westmead student Shanaya Donovan featured in the ABC NSW back to school news coverage on Friday 29 January. Shanaya, a Dharug traditional owner and activist, shared her hopes for the future and reflected on the experience of COVID-19 as a student.

The bulletin included moving footage of Shanaya's Welcome to Country at Catherine McAuley's inspirational opening assembly for the 2021 school year. This occasion also was the first whole school assembly at Catherine McAuley since COVID-19 restrictions were recently eased.
