A Visit from Ngutana-Lui

On Tuesday, 25th August, our friends from the Ngutana-Lui (to teach) Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Studies Centre visited St Francis College for a day of interactive learning activities. All students from Prep to Year 6 participated as well as our Indigenous students from Years 7-12 .  We welcomed the tutors: Marlon, Brian, Robert, Bernadette and Jeff as they shared their knowledge and enthusiasm with our NAidoc 11.JPG
students. Students were given the opportunity to learn how to throw a boomerang, learn about Torres Strait Islander culture, learn about food & fibre, hear cultural stories and learn an Aboriginal song and dance. During the farewell we had the great pleasure to listen to some didgeridoo playing from the Ngutana-Lui Tutors and Mr Conroy. Mr Conroy was very honoured to show his skills on his didgeridoo that is proudly on display in his office. The day concluded with the primary school students singing a song to the Ngutana-Lui tutors that they have been learning with Mr Faleono. On behalf of the whole school we thank the Ngutana-Lui tutors for sharing their valued knowledge and time with our school.
