Celebrating Aboriginal Children's Day at Murrook Cultural Centre

29 October 2019

Participants from our Forster day program took a roadtrip to Murrook Cultural Centre to learn more about Aboriginal Children's Day

Earlier this month the participants from our Forster Day Program in NSW travelled down to the Murrook Culture Centre at Williamstown at the invitation of LWB’s Waruparr committee in celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day. Participants, staff and family were treated to a day of Aboriginal Culture thanks to Justin and his team at Murrook. The group participated in painting Boomerangs using Aboriginal symbols and design, the creation of an artwork that will be displayed in the Lower Mid North Coast region and a shared lunch together. Later in the day the group headed outdoor to learn how to throw a boomerang, which was definitely the favourite activity of the attendees. There were some very enthusiastic Boomerang throwers out there.

The final activity of the day was to witness the playing of the didgeridoo and have faces painted to take part in some traditional dancing. On behalf of everyone in attendance thank you to Murrook for having the Foster Day program group and thank you to the Waruparr committee for organising the event. The group loved it and learnt so much. They are looking forward to attending again.
