Trees for Good
5th of September, 2022.
***30 Trees Planted at Alberton Primary School***
Today we launched the “Trees for Good” Project. We look forward to continually tracking and monitoring these trees in the future!
Thank you for modelling the importance of looking after our environment and always working toward leaving the environment better then we found it. We loved helping our environment and are looking forward to many years of shade and play from these beautiful trees.

Mindful Mentors

“Mindful Mentors has provided an opportunity and safe forum for young Aboriginal girls to share their learning, culture and skills. Our student leaders have demonstrated bravery, confidence and zest to share the importance of being grateful, showing gratitude and teaching mindfulness to health professionals. Our students have been guided by Christine and Belinda, modelling kindness, calmness and a sense of purpose in their work.  It has been wonderful to see the partnership between Alberton Primary School, Calvary Hospital and our students grow and strengthen since engaging in the Mindful Mentors program.”

 Dan Jarrad – Principal 


“So, Mindful Mentors – you are probably thinking, what are they and what do they do? We are a group of Aboriginal Learners that have been working together with Christine on mindfulness and gratitude. We work closely with the Calvary Hospital and present to them the skills we use to become grounded, mindful and ready to learn. We also have worked with Calvary over the last 2 years and made (over 30!) Care Packs for Calvary Staff and Christmas Elf Projects. We love learning about and sharing our Culture, and working with Calvary Adelaide”
