BOORLOO ABORIGINAL CULTURAL EXPERIENCES

Kindergarten - Yr 10

Modern science meets traditional wisdom.

EXCURSION INFO

Boorloo Aboriginal Cultural Experiences comprises a range of indigenous learning activities conducted on the banks of Noogenboro (Herdsman Lake), which was a traditional Nyungar camp ground. Dreaming-time stories and art and dance lessons from Nyungar Aboriginals provide a bridge of common understanding between contemporary and traditional thinking, breaking down cultural barriers as students learn about the modern and ancient ecological footprint.
