Kulunga Katitjin Kaarta Koomba - exploring Aboriginal culture to promote a sustainable and respectful future for all.

This immersive program will enhance respect for Aboriginal people, appreciation for diversity in our community and a sense of responsibility for caring for our natural environment.

Join our Aboriginal presenters as they share their knowledge of the six Noongar seasons and traditional life. Year 1 to Year 6 students participate in cultural activities traditionally associated with the seasons, such as plant uses for food and medicine, hunting, language, art, dance, and traditional games.
