General News Week 5

Year 6 Day Camp – 21st May 2019 (Day Camp photos in our Gallery section)

On our Day Camp we grew our leadership skills of perspective and active listening as we learned about Aboriginal culture and how to fish and hunt. We tried some bush tucker such as damper and kangaroo.  There was so much knowledge and understanding of the land and animals that we never realised, like the Aboriginal people adapted themselves, not the environment. We also did lots of other activities like grinding grain, painting our faces with a totem animal and making fire. Lots of parents came to help us with our barbeque and then we did a night walk through the forest to look for native animals – so many spiders and possums! All our learning was done outside surrounded by beautiful native trees and bushes. At the end of the day, our most prized possessions are our memories of the great time and learning we had at the Perth Hills Discovery Centre. Charli, Emma, Charleze, Anna, Luka, Arwen
