NAIDOC Gallery Incursion

To celebrate NAIDOC week, an Aboriginal Art Gallery was held last Wednesday in our CaLDEYLink room. Students from Kindy to Year 6 were invited to view Miss Liedel's family artwork, read books, and examine artefacts from the Pilbara region. The Palyku artist in this gallery included Sally Morgan (known for her book 'My Place'), Amberlin Kwaymullina (author and illustrator of 'Billie and the Blue Bike') and Gladys Milroy (author and illustrator of 'Dingo's Tree'). This year, the art gallery was interactive. By scanning a QR code, students could listen to Gladys Milroy talk about how she created her book 'Silver Leaves' and examine some of the original sketches that are featured within it.
