Following the visit in Sydney, it was nice to experience another context in Aboriginal communities by visiting the inland city of Armidale. Again, a strong partnership between Gunawirra, a preschool and primary school.
The model of education in cultural identity complemented by individual and group interventions where needed, appeared consistent with the city. Faced with walls of adult mistrust, these children were able to integrate and appeared comfortable with their emerging identity.
Teachers were instrumental, and the old dancing story about a coconut and a fish that was led by a student, was fun too!
