Naturescape Exploration

The Year 1/2 students had a wonderful trip to Kings Park recently. When they arrived they were met by Benji and Jess. Jess was their teacher for the workshop and she told the students of the story of Chunyard and the Cheeky Parrot while they walked. Jess shared some history of the area and elements of Noongar culture. She was very impressed with the knowledge the students already had. The students were able to see and hold some traditional Noongar weapons and tools. Jess gave them a demonstration on how bibool (paperbark) can be used as a bandage. The students also learnt that the sap from the Marri tree (look for the honkey nuts) can be used as medicine. At the end of their workshop, they got to spend some time in the mia-mias (temporary shelters), practising their bandaging skills, writing stories with Noongar symbols, using traditional tools and lots more! It was good to see their teamwork and communication in action.

Then it was time for naturescape exploring! The Curious Djidi Djidi’s were in their element and so comfortable in the space! They particularly loved the water and the high walkways. They spotted many quendas (bandicoots) our and about which was surprising as they are a nocturnal animal!
