Sharing culture and knowledge is extremely important to Tim and the team at Girri Girra. If traditions are not passed on, they will not survive.
A school excursion onto the land is a learning experience that simply can’t be delivered in the classroom.
Walking among the trees or standing on the beach with the sand between their toes, students will understand why a connection to country is such an important part of traditional Australian culture.
Girri Girra’s education programs can be tailored to suit children of all ages, from pre-schoolers to high school seniors. His programs also cater to many Stage One, Two and Three History and Geography Learning Outcomes.
Some of the experiences that we offer include:
- Acknowledgement to Country
- Smoking ceremonies
- Cultural singing and dancing
- Aboriginal knowledge and storytelling
- Cultural awareness education
- Bush tucker
- Tool crafting
- Ochre grinding and body painting
- Natural Art
