Ltyentye Apurte School, Marist school for Aboriginal children

26/06/2004: Australia

In the middle of May Marist primary school students from “Our Lady of the Sacred Heart School” in Alice Springs visited their Marist counterparts in Saint Teresa, a small town about 80 kilometers (50 miles) away. Most of the townspeople are Aborigines. Their ancestors, including in this community east of Arremete, go back some 40,000 years and live with the painful memory of having been thrown off their lands. They arrived in Ltyentye Apurte, their promised land after years of wandering through the desert. In 1978 they were granted the deed to this area. Studying their culture, language, and spirituality is tremendously enriching. The government assists them to a great extent with financing and personnel.
