Workshop with Dale Austin

Thank you to all the students who attended our Sunday workshop and of course to Dale Austin for his Facilitation.

 

 

Dale shared his own culture and traditions with us, and allowed us share our own. It was a valuable experience learning about Aboriginal music, hunting ceremonies, art which we took part in and Aboriginal history.  Dale highlighted ways we respectfully implement authentic activities with our children.

The session allowed us to reflect on our own philosophy and pedagogy, taking steps away from tokenism, moving towards reconciliation and educating our children in the ways and traditions of the nations first people.
