On Monday, 18 September there will be a whole school Koomurri Aboriginal incursion.

The cost for the whole day incursion is $10. If not already paid in the Schedule of Payments at the beginning of the year, could you please complete the note below and return it to school with the $10 by Friday, 15 September. If paid, just return the signed Permission Note to your child’s classroom teacher ASAP.

The morning will commence at 9:25am with a formal "Welcome to Country", traditional Aboriginal song and dance concert with a Smoking Ceremony. Duration for this is approximately 20 minutes. The children will have been placed into 4 groups for rotational activities to begin.

The 4 rotational activities will be:
1. Artefacts, weaponry, bush survival and history
2. Aboriginal song and dance
3. Aboriginal art on canvas and Aboriginal face painting
4. Boomerang throwing (if wet weather this will change to Torres Strait Islander or didgeridoo and storytelling)

At approximately 2:30pm, the entire school will watch the farewell traditional Aboriginal song and dance concert, where some students and teachers will be invited to join in the dance performance.
