Connection to Country school-based workshops are the ultimate way for your students to connect to Aboriginal culture. Students will learn about Aboriginal connection to country - seeing the land as the Yuin people have done
for thousands of years. The workshops are adapted to suit specific ages and curriculum outcomes (Primary and Secondary) and we provide interactive cultural resources to complement our sound knowledge.

Connection to Country workshops align with National and NSW Curriculum objectives in learning about Aboriginal culture and heritage across subject areas including History, Geography, Aboriginal language and Aboriginal Studies.

Workshops can be delivered in both indoor and outdoor environments.

Please note Workshop 1 and Workshop 2 are separate workshops that each run for 2 hours. Please indicate which workshop you would like upon booking, or NNCA can facilitate and deliver both workshops in 1 day (depending on availability).
