Aboriginal Artist visit

Team NZ and the rest of 5/6 were treated to a real taste of life down under on Friday with our guest host for the day - Aboriginal Artist, Francis Firebrace. With tales from the bush to talking on the aboriginal mobile phone, there was never a dull moment. We learnt all about the origin, rules and techniques of aboriginal art, a few native stories, and not forgetting a few special Aussie greetings - hugs-a-go-go!

Check out our pictures from the day and don't forget to tie your kangaroos down boys and girls.

For more pictures and memories from the day please have a look at the blogs of Class India and Class China.

Look and See. Hear and Listen.
