New Aboriginal program for Woy Woy PS

The school’s cultural dance group has been formed

A new Aboriginal program has launched at Woy Woy Public School in a bid to embed Aboriginal perspectives into the daily curriculum.

Chloe Nebauer will continue in her role as Aboriginal Programs teacher, supporting students in literacy, numeracy and in a social role with Aboriginal community members and the local Koorana Aboriginal Educational Consultative Group.

Nebauer said students will receive extra support from local community leaders.

“We are very happy to welcome back the Aunties from Mingaletta who visit our school every Wednesday afternoon, teaching Culture to all students,” Nebauer said.

“This term they will visit Year 1 and Year 2 classes, teaching local history and traditional symbols as methods of communication.

“[Also], our cultural dance group, Guliyali Dancers, is currently being held on Tuesdays … all Aboriginal children are invited to attend.

“We will also be forming a select group of dancers to try out for the Central Coast Dance Festival this year.”

Nebauer also encouraged any community members wishing to contribute to the school’s Aboriginal educational program to contact her at the school.
