St Michael's College is proud to launch their Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)​, revealing their much anticipated wall mural honouring the Kombumerri people’s lands on which the school stands.

Local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artist, Luke Mallie, has worked over the past few months with staff and students at the College to create an interactive artwork piece called “Dreamtime in the Stars”. Using the fingerprints of staff and students in the mural design, this collaborative art piece symbolises the start of the College’s reconciliation journey.

Inspired by the surroundings of Merrimac, the mural is a vibrant interpretation of the local fauna and flora through a mix of contemporary and traditional Aboriginal art. The mural seeks to become part of an enduring visual legacy, indicative of St Michael’s commitment to reconciliation.

It has been an amazing and interactive journey for staff and students to be involved in, and something that has highlighted the sense of "community' here at St Michael's College.

As we start our reconciliation journey, we look forward to contributing in meaningful ways and working as a community to make this a 'lived' part of what we do here at the College.​
