Last Thursday, Bianca from Noongar Oaks Creations came to meet the children in Banksia 1, 2 and 3. She read us a story about the Emu in the Sky (the Milky Way) and the significance of these stars to Noongar people. We had so much fun painting the Emu in the Sky with pink, purple, black and white paint on bark.
Bianca then spoke to us about totems and shared what her family’s totems were. The children were given the opportunity to explore a variety of different animal totems before choosing one for themselves. They then had a go at representing their totem using pencils and paints.
