Worawa Debutante Ball

On 26 August, twelve Worawa students were partnered by boys from partner schools, Scotch College and Luther College to make their debut at the Worawa Debutante Ball. The ball was part of a broader suite of activities under the College’s Pathways to Womanhood program which is aimed at supporting young women to understand the transition to womanhood, to build self-esteem and prepare them to take their place as leaders in their own communities as well as in the broader community. The students who made their debut come from remote and regional Aboriginal communities including Titjikala, Yuendumu, Ilpeye Ilpeye, Epenarra, Darwin and Wagga Wagga. Over 200 guests enjoyed the evening with many parents traveling from home communities to see their daughters make their debut.

A segment of the Deb Ball was shown on the 7.30 Report on Channel 2 and can be viewed on the internet at:
