On Friday, 13th September, four students, Kevin, Agam, Jenny and Jonita travelled with Mr Hunter to Silverton Primary School where they delivered an environmental sustainability workshop. The workshop was based on how Indigenous Australians used natural materials to create useful products.
Our students taught other students how to make cordage using a type of native grass called Lomandra. The cordage was used as a rope to make items like baskets and fishing nets. Students also made ochre paint by crushing different coloured rocks into a powder and then adding water which was then used to make dot paintings. Our four students did exceptionally well with their presentation and they demonstrated a high level of confidence and skill. Many staff from other schools who also observed the workshop commented on how well our students presented and that their workshop was their favourite workshop of the day. Well done Kevin, Agam, Jenny and Jonita!!
