Governor General visit

The Yiramalay/Wesley Studio School was honoured to welcome the Governor-General of Australia, Ms Quentin Bryce AC, for an overnight visit to the school and to spend some time with the students, teachers and families there. This was an occasion to celebrate and remember, as an important event in the growth and development of the Studio School in the Kimberley.
