Ngutana Lui

Robert from Ngutana-Lui (meaning to teach) visited Kindy to share his culture with us. This visit included looking at Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artefacts, listening to the sounds of clapping sticks and the didgeridoo, and singing and dancing with Robert.

Robert taught us that things from nature such as turtle shells and kangaroo skins can be used for many different things. We will continue to learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait culture and perspectives in our Kindy programs.

Bee Yourself

It was a pleasure to have Sarah from Bee Yourself at Kindy to talk with us about the importance of bees. Sarah taught the children about native bees which we are lucky to have at our Kindy and she had some hives of her own to show us. Sarah demonstrated splitting our box hive and harvesting honey. The children tasted the honey and look forward to making baked goods using the harvested honey.
