I present hands on Aboriginal workshops for schools,
mainly in Qld.
Indigenous school incursions that have been engaging kids for over 30 years now…quite proud to say!
Literally from first day at Prep right through to the last day of High School…these workshops just grab the attention of kids - teachers..parents - right up to corporate execs or a PM...
By all accounts they are very insightful, highly educational…… …and great fun!!
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?
Real Indigenous information and culture shared and evaluated in a relaxed learning environment for all kids.
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

A highlight of Semester 1 is the incursion conducted by Rick Roser, where students are taught and involved in various traditional Aboriginal cultural activities including fire making, face decorating, and spear and boomerang throwing. The students gain valuable knowledge from this incursion as they learn the significance and purpose of some Aboriginal cultural activities.
