Gawura On Country Tour


For three days in September 2018, our Indigenous students from Year 5 to Year 12 went on the inaugural Gawura On Country Tour.

They travelled through Wiradjuri Country to Dubbo where they did a night safari and learnt about Indigenous animal totems from our Wiradjuri teacher, Ms Williams. The students participated in a zoo feeding tour of the animals and then rode bikes around the 6km zoo circuit.

Their next stop was Bathurst where Wiradjuri Elders from the Bathurst Heritage Park conducted activities in weaving, boomerang throwing and Wiradjuri art. Thanks to Aunty Jill and Uncle Bill who shared stories about country and the absolutely amazing session on Skylore hosted by Professor David McKinnen.

Our Indigenous students have come away with wonderful experiences and a wealth of knowledge which will prepare them for the future as they too become Elders one day!
