Do you want your students to learn about traditional Aboriginal languages from the land they live on? Would you like them to be able to identify the special relationships Aboriginal people have with their land? Would your students enjoy an interactive day filled with exciting activities such as boomerang-throwing, string-making and participating in a traditional ochre and smoke ceremony? If so, let us take the planning off your hands. In this excursion, students will learn about Australia pre- and post European settlement, discussing the Aborignal way of life before the First Fleet landed on Australian shores - such as what they traded, what they ate, and how settlement changed one of the world’s oldest surviving cultures forever.
