First Nations performer Gwenda visits Castlecrag

03 June 2021

Gwenda Stanley is a dancer, educator, cultural ambassador and a proud First Nations Gomeroi woman. She came to Castlecrag to share her culture with Class 1 & 2 students on Tuesday 25th May, the day before Sorry Day, 2021. Through song, dance and stories, she shared her knowledge and demonstrated her tools and artefacts, with the children enthusiastically listening and dancing along with her to the animal songs and stories. She told the children about hunting, gatherings sticks and the three types of boomerangs, echidnas, seeds and making bread, dilly bags, grinding stones and much more. Gwenda taught the children many words in her traditional language, and expressed her own joy in sharing her culture with the children at Glenaeon. Thank you Gwenda.  See:
