Incursions

Cultural incursions can be held for early learning centres, primary schools and high schools. Cassie’s school workshops are a great opportunity for students to learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures as part of the Australian Curriculum’s cross-curriculum priorities.

Cassie’s availability depends on the distance to be travelled and available time, so if you want to book a workshop make sure you book well in advance.

Cultural Camps

Cassie has been conducting cultural camps in East Gippsland (Camp Coolamatong) for many years. She takes students on hikes, teaches them survival skills, instructs them on how to make shelters and runs art classes. Cultural camps can be modified to suit your needs and student learning requirements.

 

I love teaching kids and showing them what I do and maybe change their perspective on Aboriginal culture.
