Want to introduce new games that promote physical activity, but also challenge problem solving skills of students? There is no better way than embracing the various Traditional Indigenous Games available. There is a wide range of spectacular traditional Indigenous games that will rouse children. These games can be played every day, becoming a normal part of the physical activity plan for the home, centre or school.
NAIDOC Week - Educational Experience
A child’s voice is an incredibly powerful tool for learning. From the moment children begin to experiment with the mechanics of their voice, to the exploration of power, autonomy and authority, a child’s voice becomes part of their identity.
With 2019 being the International Year of Indigenous Languages, there is no better time than now for educators and educational communities to explore and embed local Aboriginal language into the learning programme.
NAIDOC Week is a key acknowledgment date on the educational calendar of early learning centres all across Australia. It is a time where we, as a community, come together and celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
"As educators, parents and carers, we understand how important it is to support children in learning literacy skills such as language, enabling them to be competent and confident students. But what about if the language you were learning was so far removed from the roots in which your very soul was born? What if you did not identify with the words being taught? What if you feel a deep seeded connection to this earth and that of our past, yet the way in which you interact on a daily basis does not reflect any of this? Many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and adults feel this in their everyday lives."
