Pertame Country Visit September 2016

Last weekend Christobel, Geraldine and Jodie took five Pertame children and four wonderful ladies to Boomerang Bore for the inaugural Pertame School. Christobel’s dream is to deliver Pertame School ten weekends per year to teach her family¬†language, songs, stories and responsibilities for Country and each other. The children heard stories, cooked damper and kangaroo tails, watched a slideshow of Pertame history, learnt about symbols in art, visited a sacred waterhole and put on a concert.

We are building partnerships and revenue streams so that Christobel can fulfil her cultural obligations as First Teacher of her critically endangered language.
