Mazenod College received the Secondary School Award in the Community category for the popular “Welcome to My Country” podcast series.  There were 32 Catholic school entries. 

Mrs Beth Murphy came up with the idea as a way to learn about the experiences of Indigenous students who are boarding at Mazenod.

“The boys bring their culture to the forefront and speak openly and honestly about past present and future,” Mrs Beth Murphy said.

“The talk about life at home and the challenges they face away from Country.”

The podcasts have allowed Mazenod’s Indigenous students to have a sense of belonging and be understood as they can see themselves, their identity and their cultures in their school.
