Wow with Uncle Russell


Meeting Uncle Russell and the Start of our Day of Learning about Indigenous Culture. This was our Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony at the start of our SUPER DAY!

Cleansing ourselves with the smoke from the gum leaves as Uncle Russell taught us by waving our hands in the smoke towards our body.

Uncle Russell painted our faces and for some of us, our hair too!

Playing the didgeridoo

Showing us some traditional tools used by Aboriginals

Clapping sticks and we got to do a dance with these instruments

Getting our faces painted

Helping us to make an Indigenous inspired piece of art with our hands

Learning to throw a boomerang with Uncle Russell. We couldn’t believe our eyes how high he could throw it and how it returned back to him. WOWZERS!

Uncle Russell painting his Totem (the black snake ) on our artwork!

What did you learn from the day with Uncle Russell? What wonderings do you have about Indigenous Culture?

    Dear Miss Murphy,

    I really enjoyed this incursion. Especially when I got to see how they dance and how they lived. It was very fun when he played the digaridoo, making difference animal noises. I really had fun when I threw a boomerang. But Uncle Russle was the best out off everyone! I also learnt that there were different kinds off boomerang.

    Dear 3/4 M,

    I was so lucky to end up in a class with all of you.
    When I first came to this school I didn’t know I was going to be in the best teacher’s class.
    To think back to the day when Uncle Russel came brings all the excitement back to my day.

    Love From, Elaine
