Living Country, living culture can be delivered at your school for Stage 3 students, focusing on HSIE. This is an interactive incursion for young students, with sensory and hands-on activities.
Students can look forward to a fun day of learning about the culture and Country of the Yuin People, led by a local Aboriginal guide. They’ll find out about bush tucker and medicine, the role of women in Yuin culture, traditional weaving, art, music and dance, and how the Yuin People manage and protect Country.
Aboriginal people have been walking the earth for thousands of years. They continue to have a strong connection to country, and traditional practices and stories play an important part in modern life.
Students will come away with an appreciation of the rich Aboriginal culture that exists in their region. They'll make fundamental links between traditional stories, land, Country and languages.
