The Meeting Place
Is held once a fortnight during school terms for the aboriginal children within the Mount Alexander shire. Students are collected from their school and taken to The Meeting Place which is held at the old Yapeen School site, which is a campus of the Castlemaine Secondary College. Whilst there the students learn about the local Jaara Jaara knowledge and Aboriginal beliefs and complete activities that are culturally enriching, and have incorporated the cross curricular priorities within the Australian Curriculum.
