Connecting to Country is an Aboriginal community cultural awareness teaching programme. Over the course of three days, participating teachers will learn about local Aboriginal culture, history and social experience. By the end of the programme it is anticipated that participating teachers will have significantly bettered the depth of their insight into the myriad of social, cultural, historic, economic and political issues that continue to affect and concern Aboriginal peoples and communities, without a doubt this has to be the best experience I’ve ever had! I cannot wait for many more programs like this to happen.
