Cultural exchange on Indigenous Camp

The Year 8 students and staff recently returned from an amazing Indigenous camp to Kakadu. The camp has a strong focus on developing cross cultural connections and looking at Indigenous Australia through the eyes of other children. For this we partner up with Jabiru Area School to have activities taught to students from both schools.

We invited members of the local community to our Shabbat service during which various students from King David led and explained the significance to those present. Then our students were engaged in learning the various art traditions taught by local students, had the option to learn the local language, Kunwinkju, participate in various sporting activities that have an Indigenous practice, as well as going out on country to spend time learning from the Elders, Auntie Violet and Auntie Elizabeth.

This is our third Indigenous camp the local Jabiru students were able to recall some past KDS students and were asking us after them.
