All my children are aboriginal, and my eldest 2 are in high school. My son doesn’t really get into th aboriginal programs as he’d rather be in class, but my daughter in year 7, is a part of th dancing group, and leave th school twice a week to dance, and also in a program where they go for nature walks n just hang out. I’m beginning to get really concerned about how much time is spent out of th classroom. Her mid year report wasn’t all that impressive with not all home work or assessments being handed in, and her excuse was “well I wasn’t there to learn it all” i think culture Is a huge part of who my kids are, and important, but it shouldn’t be getting in th way of her education. Would it be wrong of me to pull her out of one of th programs or would that be seen as a white mother, not respecting her child’s background.
