Year 5 News

Year 5 have recently been examining Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and history through our English unit, which focused on the text Stolen Girl by Trina Saffioti. This fictional story is based on the events of the Stolen Generation. In the vain of exploring different cultures, Year 5 Magenta was lucky enough to have Logan’s father Piri visit our classroom to talk about Maori culture and history. It was very interesting to see the parallels between the history of Maori people and Indigenous Australians. Piri and his sons also taught the Year 5 students some Maori language and a song! Thank you so much to the Broughton family for sharing this with us. We absolutely loved it.
