Mekala was our first student from the East Arnhem community of Ramingining. Mekala arrived in Geelong mid February 2018 and achieved a lot in the time she spent as a participant of the Marrma’ Rom program. Mekala entered the program at Year 10 at Belmont High School and worked hard in her EAL classes to improve her English. Mekala played great footy throughout the season in the U/18 St. Joseph’s girls football team and was part of the Premiership team, 2018. Mekala’s long term goal was to complete Year 12 here in Geelong and look to go on to further studies, however, at the end of 2018 she decided to return to her home community. We wish her well for the future and hope she achieves her dreams and goals.
