Francis Firebrace (our aboriginal guest and a larger-than-life character!) spent the morning sharing with us about life in the bush, telling us all sorts of fascinating stories about how the people live and survive. For example, did you know that aborigines make string for their weapons using the stretched tendons found in a kangaroos tail?! Amazing! What new stuff did you learn today? What information did you find most interesting? 'Comment' and share it for us to remember and for others to learn.

We met Francis Firebrace this morning in the school office and he gave us all a big hug as a greeting - he is a very interesting person. I didn't get to see any of the wonderful things you were doing so perhaps I can come into your class to see them.

I really enjoyed having an aboriginal artist in. It was really interesting to hear about the times he had living in Austrailia and the different ways they have. What do you think?

It was great having Francis Firebrace in, I really enjoyed it. His paintings were amazing and the storys were very interesting. I had no idea he was coming until it was mentioned in worship, but I'm glad he came.
