As part of the day-long educational experience, pupils were treated to a performance by the Koomurri cultural dance troupe and a traditional smoking ceremony.

There were also Aboriginal art activities, a boomerang throwing exhibition and a display of  Aboriginal artifacts. One of the highlights of the day was an artwork presented to the school that featured every child’s handprint.

“The students really enjoyed learning about the Aboriginal cultural and participating in the numerous activities,” stage two teacher Bojana Stegnjaic said.
