During the July School Holidays, local indigenous artist Jade Dolman of J.D. Penagke painted a large-scale mural depicting her intepretation of 'Mirrabooka' and incorporating native flowers.
Kadidjiny Djet means learning from the flowers. In Indigenous culture, when certain flowers would bloom, it would indicate when specific animals or foods were ready for collection.
See the mural outside the Gloria Jeans entrance, off Sudbury Road.
