This amazing collection of Aboriginal artefacts including spears and baskets have been kindly donated to Beaconhills by Bill Rue and family, long-time members of the College community.

The Rue family lived in the Aboriginal community of Maningrida, Northern Territory. These artefacts have been in their family for many years and were traditionally used by the family and community members.

Beaconhills’ Head of Indigenous Initiatives, Lynette George, said some artefacts were very old and the College was lucky to have them entrusted to our care.

Pictured is our Reconciliation Captain Isabella Cameron-Dukes accepting the artefacts onto Country from Bill Rue.
