A Message from Waverley Stanley AM

What a year 2020 has been. It will be one to remember for the many learnings and challenges that all of us had to face, whether you were at school or online learning at home, at work or working from home, or isolated in more ways than one. I am grateful to live in Australia — grateful that no family members of mine were affected by coronavirus.

We have come out the other side of this year and to everyone in the Yalari family, thank you so very much for your continued support of our children, our young people and alumni, and for believing in their holistic education.

To the Yalari board members, staff, families of our children and alumni, supporters, friends, volunteers, partnership school staff, sponsors and donors — thanks very much for your generosity. We are changing lives every day. We are changing the perceptions within this country and we will bring about generational change and healing for all.

Now, we look forward to 2021. Yalari turns 16, and we welcome 45 new Yalari children to the family as they commence their educational journey at their respective boarding schools.

We are also excited for the opportunity to meet face to face with everyone again at our Yalari Fundraising Dinners around Australia.

Lastly, we have missed our students at Yalari’s various camps this year. So the highlight first up in 2021will be our Orientation Camp for our Year 7 and 8 students. This will be followed closely by our Year 10 Pay-it-Forward weekend, our Year 11 university weekend, and our Year 12 Pathways weekend.

Wishing everyone a restful, peaceful and rejuvenating break over this festive season.

Waverley with Year 12 Scotch Adelaide graduate, Imani Austin
