Stage 2 – First Contacts


On Tuesday, Stage 2 were excited to have local Gumbaynggirr men Clark Webb, Uncle Barry and Uncle John visit us as part of our History unit, First Contacts. We started off by learning “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” in Gumbaynggirr, which was a lot oClark Webb 4f fun. We were especially interested in learning about which parts of the grass tree and tobacco plant are best to use to light fires, and how local people carved canoes using the wood from tree trunks. Did you know that Aboriginal people waste NOTHING when they kill a kangaroo? The skins are used for clothing, meat is cooked, eyes are eaten and the blood makes delicious gravy!
