re: Indigenous school incursions
...I'm an Aboriginal workshop presenter of Aboriginal school workshops for schools and corporations.
My Indigenous school incursions 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!!
...%100hands 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...
and providing a positive introduction to Aboriginal culture
The Aboriginal School Workshop Timetable
is.....as your school requires...eg : 5 X 1hr sessions in a full day
Maybe 2 or 3 X 1 hr sessions in a part day
sometimes double classes etc.
Each individual activity takes approx 15 mins so there are usually 4 or 5 activities to a 1hr session.
Aboriginal school workshop Activities available at the Workshops include:
OchrePainting...Face/Hair/Hands old T Shirts etc. using real Ochres
Emu Feather Headdresses using Ochres, Beeswax, and Emu Feathers
Fire Making using traditional fire sticks
Boomerang & Spear throwing using a woomera
Didjeridoo Workshops includes how to circular breathe
Story telling and Aboriginal culture Information from Shelter to Cooking are a big part of these Indigenous school incursions
In case of inclement weather or other circumstances there are
Stone Tool Making or
Painting on boomerangs or canvas.
Murals and installations as well....
Some of my art and artefacts have been collected by National & State Galleries, Museums and private collections.
All materials are supplied
The workshops are best located in an undercover outdoor area close to the oval.
