Alex Zagoudis DLSC AshfieldAlex Zagoudis, Year 12 presented a talk to his fellow English Standard classmates centred around Aboriginal Spirituality as part of their study of Ali Cobby Eckermann’s poetry for ‘Module A: Language, Culture and Identity’.

Alex’s deep knowledge and authentic understanding of Aboriginal Spirituality was conveyed to his peers with confidence and pride. Students were presented with information on Aboriginal Spirituality and how the harsh experiences of the Stolen Generation permeate Eckermann’s quest for finding her true identity.

Students were privileged to hear Alex’s personal story that has shaped his own identity and he conveyed that the formation of one’s identity is deeply entrenched in family, experience, traditions, stories, rituals, language and culture.
