National Reconciliation Week at St Martins Lutheran College

St Martins Lutheran College in Mount Gambier is continuing work on their Reconciliation Action Plan by installing their first Indigenous Student Leader, Nikita Anderson. Nikita is a Ngarrindjeri woman, and an inspired and enthusiastic young leader. Nikita will work closely with students, staff and community members to continue the College’s journey of understanding and connection.

Unfortunately, Nikita was unwell during Reconciliation Week, but was still able to produce this excellent video for our celebratory worship:

Pastor Jon Goessling, on secondment to St Martins this year, had this to say, “At the conclusion of Reconciliation Week our college worship reflected on the spiritual dimension of reconciliation.  Our younger students presented on the topic of friendship and how our attitude in our relationships contributes to making the world more how God intended it. We were also honoured with a video produced by our new Indigenous Captain, Nikita Anderson. Nikita spoke confidently about being an Aboriginal woman, the theme of ‘Be a Voice for Generations’, and what her hopes are for the future.  Nikita even shared a traditional Bunyip story on the theme of Reconciliation. The morning was a blessing to all.”

Nikita herself commented that, “It was an honour to be a part of National Reconciliation Week in the College, to be able to speak openly about it to not only the students but the whole of the St Martins community during Worship.”
