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.
