Earlier this term the students in Reception, Year 3 and Year 6 were fortunate to be visited by Owen Love during their Drama lessons. Owen is a storyteller of the Ngarrindjeri people and he taught us a little about his culture and beliefs. He used different techniques to tell stories, including using some funny characterisation as well as his didgeridoo (or yidaki). The children were very respectful and asked some really insightful questions. The Reception students have continued to learn about Aboriginal stories in their Drama lessons, the Year 3 students are performing short plays based on Dreaming stories, and the Year 6 students performed individual storytelling sessions to their buddies at the end of term. We thank Owen for coming in and inspiring us to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture.
