Contact Visit to Shepherdson College

Lenny visited Shepherdson College at Galiwin’ku (Elcho Island) to visit 25 students studying Stage 1 Numeracy. All of the students were very excited for the visit, especially when Lenny surprised them by bringing KFC all the way from Darwin!

The students worked diligently on their numeracy work and they even stayed back until 3:30pm to make the most of their time with Lenny.  The students also taught Lenny some words in their local language Yolngu Matha, and Lenny taught them Indonesian in return.

This was Lenny’s first visit to Galiwin’ku and she was surprised when she found a pay phone that you could send a text message from!

Lenny loved the visit; the students were happy and excited to learn and it was a great experience for all involved.
