We are both very thankful for gaining this opportunity to contribute to Nura Gili and gain experience as Media Interns. During semester two, Nura Gili will employ new Media Interns to take over this role and we wish them the best of luck with the following editions. We are confident that Nura Gili has both the facilities and guidance to assist the new interns in continuing the success of the Nura Gili News. It is a very hectic time of semester for students and staff. Nura Gili is busily preparing for the 2016 UNSW Indigenous Winter School taking place in the first week of July. Additionaly, the the UNSW Indigenous Games Team are currently training hard for this year’s National Indigenous Tertiary Education Student Games at the end of this month. Finally, all students are preparing for the end of semester assessments and exams. The Indigneous Society will also be atteding Bangarra’s production of OUR Land People Stories on June 10 at the Sydney Opera House. Blast from the Past! 18 To the first year students who have completed their first semester of tertiary studies, congratulations you’ve made it through the hardest part and to the students who have just completed their last semester of their studies, well done on this achievement and best of luck in your future endeavours! Good luck to everyone during their final assessments and exams and we hope you all have a relaxing and joyful break! Congrats, Scott! 17 Monique & Polly Nura Gili would like to acknowledge the Bedegal (Kensington Campus), Gadigal (Paddington Campus) and Ngunnawal (ADFA, Canberra) people, who are the traditional custodians of the lands where each campus of UNSW Australia is located.
