NACC NRM has developed two education resources for schools: Sharing Yamaji Knowledge and Sharing Noongar Knowledge.

These resources  align with the Western Australian curriculum Science and Humanities and Social Sciences curriculum for students in pre-primary to Year 9. The resources include information on your local Aboriginal group, connection to Country, bush food, traditional ecological knowledge, caring for Country and changes to the environment post-colonisation.

The resources have been developed in consultation with Noongar and Yamaji people and contain background information, videos and activities to engage learners. The resources have been designed to complement incursions or excursions with Aboriginal members of your community.

Hi,

I am a year 1/2 teacher at Mullewa District High School. I was wanting to know if you could put me in touch with an artist who would be interested in collaboratively creating an art piece with my students. I was wanting it to be spiritually and culturally reflective of this area. I was also hoping the students may be part of the process of creating the tools and paint for the art work.

Kind Regards

Richelle.
