Koori Club weaving afternoon

Once a fortnight our Aboriginal students at Holy Cross Glendale come together and yarn about culture and identity.

At our last Koori Club we had non-Aboriginal students attend as we had a special guest. We were so fortunate to have Lyn Brown come and share a bit about her story. The children especially enjoyed the hands-on part of Lyn’s visit as she demonstrated making a bracelet using traditional weaving techniques and they were able to make their own. We are so very grateful for the community connections we are beginning to make at our school and thank Lyn for her time and willingness to share her cultural knowledge. The children were so eager to learn!
