ECE7 and ECE8’s Excursion to the Mirima Dawang Woorlab-gerring Language and Culture Centre.

Posted on


Pre-primary classes ECE7 and ECE8 went on a fantastic excursion on Tuesday last week. We went to visit the Mirima Dawang Woorlab-gerring Language and Culture Centre. At the Centre we met some language teachers who taught us some Miriwoong language and a great song about a brolga.  We are going to keep learning this song and we are going to sing it at a school concert. It was great fun!

Story Time.

Posted on Updated on


Last term the Year 7’s from Miss Raven’s class read their narratives to Miss Wilson’s Year 3 class. We spent two weeks writing, editing, and then forming a book complete with drawings. After studying Dreamtime stories, we decided to use the same themes, these included: Law and Right Behaviour, Natural Events, Warning About Dangers and Identity and Belonging. Each student chose a purpose to teach the younger kids through a story.

Our stories are being marked on: characters, setting, theme, plot, complication and resolution, dialogue, imagination and more.

We enjoyed making and reading the stories and seeing if the Year 3’s understood the meanings by asking them what they thought the story was about. The plan was to get them involved, by reading the story back to us and getting them to help with the drawings. This was a great experience for both the Year 7’s and the Year 3’s.

Written by Anna Robinson, Eve Radford and Laura Jewell of Miss Raven’s class.

The Ozmosis Performance.

Posted on


Last Friday students from Pre-primary to Year 7 were treated to a live musical performance by the group ‘Ozmosis’. ‘Ozmosis’ are a Jazz ensemble that use musical instruments from many cultures around the world to bring their exciting Jazz rhythms to life. Highlights of the performance were seeing the ‘Throngophone’ – an instrument made out of PVC piping and watching the teachers dance to ‘Rakia’s Dance’ a Middle Eastern Belly Dance with Balkan rhythms.

The ensemble commented on how enthusiastic our students were and at how well they knew the songs and could respond to the the music. They also really enjoyed a lovely luncheon put on by Joy and the hospitality class from Home Economics. Thank you so much Joy, and well done our students at KDHS.

Mrs Jenny Pufke, Primary Music Teacher.

On Wednesday the 22nd of May, students from Pre Primary to Year 3 at Kununurra District High School participated in National Simultaneous Storytime. Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country. This year the book read was “The Wrong Book” by Nick Bland.

By facilitating National Simultaneous Storytime we aim to promote the value of reading and literacy and promote the value and fun of books. After listening to the story read by local Councillor Di Ausburn, the students went outside and completed various craft activities.

A great morning was had by all. Many thanks to Australian Library and Information Association and the fabulous library staff At Kununurra Community Library.
