Aboriginal School Workshops

re: Indigenous Incursions at School

Hello,  my name is Rick Roser...

...I'm an Indigenous presenter of Aboriginal workshops for Schools, Festivals 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!!


...%100 hands on... and 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...


...from Prep

Aboriginal workshops at schools and OSHC

...to Middle School...

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

...to High school....

Aboriginal incursions help teachers use Indigenous references across the curriculum

Aboriginal school incursions in Qld for over 30 years

........Right through to Uni Students

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 

  • String making, 
  • Stone Tool Making or 
  • Painting on boomerangs or canvas. 

All materials are supplied   

The workshops are best located in an undercover outdoor area close to the oval.

After 30 odd years I can work around any circumstances and pretty well guarantee everyone will have a fantastic time.

Cost...From $500 + Gst for a Part Day $900 (Per School Day) + Gst ..Travel costs may apply
