On Tuesday, the Hon. Ayor Makur Chuot shared her amazing story with our Year 6 boys. Ms Chuot was elected to the WA Legislative Council as a Labor Party member for the North Metropolitan Region in 2021 and is Western Australia’s first MP of African and South Sudanese ancestry.

Ms Chuot and her family emigrated to Australia as refugees in 2005, after spending ten years in the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya. Ms Chuot gave a fantastic speech that reinforced with the boys the importance of resilience and following your dreams.
