Poetry in First Languages – Doodjagah
Poetry in First Languages Goodjagah on Dharawal lands (Illawarra NSW) aims to deepen this connection, by having students in six Early Childhood Centres (ECC) connect with First Nations communities on Country to celebrate culture, learn Language and Dreaming Stories.
Embedded in this project is the development of a Language Resource Video created with students and Elders sharing Dharawal culture and knowledge for the local ECC community, respectfully.
