During Art Week, the children worked in teams to design a Didgeridoo using Australian Aboriginal Art. A Didgeridoo is an aboriginal musical instrument made from hollowed out stick that is beautifully decorated with Aboriginal Symbols and patterns.
They contributed to discussions on aboriginal culture and beliefs considering how this culture is different form theirs. They had to be resourceful thinkers in these sessions asking the questions ‘why’, ‘how’, ‘what if’ questions; using their imagination to thin of ideas; suggesting different ways to tackle the problem.
They contributed to a collaborative piece of art done in the style of the aboriginal art with a message of TOLERANCE. These are now hanging beautifully along our school corridor.
