Australian Story


For our Inquiry topic of ‘What makes you Australian?’ students learnt about the reasons why people immigrate to Australia. Students went home and interviewed one of their family members to find out their story. We learnt so much from our teachers, parents and grandparents journey to Australia. Amy was especially inspired by her mother’s story and asked if we could act out the interviews. We decided to dress up as one of our parents and show our learning of immigration through the interviews. We pretended to be doing an episode of ABC’s wonderful program ‘Australian Story’. In between the segments there are adverts. Think about the advert: what is advert trying to convince you to do? Who is the advert aimed for (gender, age group)? Thanks to our parents and grandparents who gave us their time and shared their stories with us! Enjoy our video!

    Dear Miss Murphy,
    I really liked the interviews. I loved performing. But I still feel like I am a little bit nervous because people laugh. But I still loved it.

    Dear Miss Murphy,

    I was nerves and a little scared.
    I wanted to go second because I wanted to get over it.
    It was so cool how you put advertisements.
