Last Thursday, our five Yalari scholarship students attended a dinner at the Brisbane Convention Centre to celebrate Yalari’s tenth anniversary. The evening was full of great entertainment and food and the girls enjoyed networking with other students, Yalari staff and corporate sponsors. Chelsea Oliver and Kelsie Mahon were recognised for being 2015 graduates and Kelsie eloquently gave a vote of thanks to Waverley Stanley, the founding Director of Yalari. Waverley spoke passionately about his vision to be a driving force behind generational change for Indigenous students, so that they face a future of hope and personal success. The girls found his words ‘truly inspiring’.
