Take a journey with us to gather knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) Histories and Cultures. This hands-on workshop is being delivered by experienced Early Learning Educators who have been on their own journey with Kim Tilley, a Joondoburri woman from Bribie Island and educator with the Sydney Olympic Park Authority.
Come along for the morning workshop only or enjoy a full day of immersion in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultures through a range of practical activities. This program addresses OUTCOME 2 of the Early Years Learning Framework: 'CHILDREN ARE CONNECTED WITH AND CONTRIBUTE TO THEIR WORLD'
