Aboriginal Incursion - engaging School Workshops - 3 decades

Hello, my name is Rick Roser...

...I'm an Indigenous  presenter of Aboriginal art and culture workshops for schools and corporations.

My school workshops have been engaging kids for over 30 years now… 

from first days at Prep right through to the last days of High School…

...and by all accounts they are very insightful, highly educational……

                                  …and great fun!!

...%100 hands on...with big shells of ochre, hundreds of emu feather hair decorations…scores of fire making sticks, dozens of didgeridoos, enough boomerangs, spears, necklaces, arm bands…

        ...making them, using them, keeping some…what’s not to love?

…Because the Students learn real skills in a such a memorable way the activities have proven invaluable for Teachers to use as Indigenous references across the curriculum

...real Indigenous information and culture shared and evaluated in a relaxed learning environment for all kids...


...from Prep

Aboriginal workshops at schools and OSHC  invaluable for Teaching Indigenous culture.

...to Middle School...

Aboriginal school workshops proven invaluable for Teaching Indigenous culture across the curriculum

...to High school....
