This full-day workshop will immerse you in Noongar culture with a mix of theory and practice. Through hands-on experiences and practical advice for classroom teachers, the essential aspects of this Cross Curriculum Priority will be explored and you will learn how respect and appreciation for the natural environment has shaped Aboriginal society and their sustainable use of resources.

This professional and personal learning experience is suitable for all teachers. It will build your own knowledge of Noongar culture, then explore resources to confidently transfer that knowledge and understanding into your teaching.

You will gain an insight into:

  • The traditional Noongar way of life and the strong connection they have with the land
  • The importance of social structures with the community, such as cultural protocols, respect for elders and gender roles
  • Curriculum links from Humanities, English and The Arts
  • Useful resources to bring Noongar culture into your classroom.
