Indigenous sport unit

6/03/2014

On Thursday 27 February and Friday 28 February Dusty Wilson, an Indigenous community sport and recreation officer, came to visit the year 8 students. The students played a number of traditional indigenous games; Dusty explained each game and the tradition behind them. Gorri was one of the favourites. This was a game young boys were taught to play by rolling rounded bark in front of them so they could pierce it with their spears teaching them how to hunt.  The present day version involved throwing tennis balls at a gym ball.
