Peter and Cholena Hughes, our local indigenous artists came to speak to the Year 4 students about their indigenous culture. Our students also got to handle didgeridoos, spears, axes, and clapping sticks.
Afterwards, Peter and Cholena gave each class an ochre workshop, where they learned how to obtain the ochre powder by rubbing the rocks. They created their own artworks using the earthy tones to create both wet and dry ochre art pieces.
What a privilege it was to listen to both Peter and Cholena share their rich history, culture, and stories surrounded by the tranquillity and rustic beauty inside the bush chapel. Thank you to both these amazing individuals: Peter and Cholena for blessing us all.
