Yarning Circle to take shape in 2017
The Yarning Circle will hold its first meeting of 2017 on 23 February at the Hymba Yumba Community Hub (6 Springfield Pkway, Springfield, QLD 4300) from 4-6pm.
The circle supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members by providing a forum to discuss and take action on workplace and school issues.
Held once each term, the Yarning Up events provide an opportunity to discuss issues that affect our work in schools. The sessions are not just for teachers; school officers and other support staff are welcome.
The first Yarning Up session for 2017 will be held from 4:00pm – 6:00pm on Thursday 23rd February at Hymba Yumba Community Hub at 6 Springfield Pkwy, Springfield QLD 4300.
Our union is proud to support our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members and, in 2017, will continue to host regular Yarning Up sessions at a variety of locations throughout Brisbane.
