Trinity News : November 2008
Indigenous Awareness Day Friday October 10 saw the Prep School boys have a great time celebrating Indigenous Awareness Day. The Infants boys were treated to a fantastic workshop experience led by InDidgDance that introduced them to many facets of the Torres Strait Island culture. They created their own Dharis – a form of head-dress – in the art and craft session, discovered some of the history and stories of the Torres Strait and learnt some songs and dances. To finish off the day the boys participated in a performance that incorporated all the skills and information they had picked up through their workshops. The primary boys were visited by Sean Dewar, an Indigenous Australian from far North Queensland who embraces both the Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal cultures. He was able to share stories about his experiences and show the boys various weapons and tools the Indigenous people used. The boys had a fantastic day embracing and learning new things about our very special Indigenous cultures.
