Our association with Mornington Island State School is an ongoing successful one.
It is our express mission to invest in the young people of Mornington Island by providing them with access to and instruction in their culture and languages. We place several personnel at the school specifically to do this. Every school child from reception to Year 10 receives a weekly instruction in culture – and most particularly dance.
We also pioneer projects with the school to incorporate Lardil and Kaiadilt languages into the school curriculum.
Mirndiyan Gununa runs workshops with young people in the arts studio, giving them an opportunity to express themselves creatively painting and creating craft.
When we are able to, we also financially support culture tours where our school children go out to perform dance in Queensland.
