Indigenous Literacy Day 2021

Sep 1, 2021

Today is Indigenous Literacy Day, and the staff and students at The Currajong School enjoy being emerged in Indigenous stories and culture. Through remote learning our students celebrated Indigenous Literacy Day through attending the free virtual celebration for all Australians. Through storytelling, the students enjoyed having a window into the richness, diversity and multilingual world of First Nations peoples. The students enjoyed seeing a selection of short, inspiring video stories by First Nations storytellers from across the country. The students enjoyed stories from kids in remote Australia, to First Nations authors, musicians and artists such as Stella Raymond, Wayne Quilliam, Jessica Mauboy, Brenton McKenna, Maureen Jipyiliya Nampijinpa O’Keefe, Lahrissa Behrendt and Anita Heiss.
