Aboriginal Games

Hi, my name is Olivia. I am a “Fire Carrier”. My job is to teach the school about indigenous culture and to spread the word of RECONCILIATION.

Today I am going to share with you an Indigenous game called Goomboobooddoo.

 Goomboobooddoo is a traditional wrestling game. Players cover their bodies in grease to make them slippery. Families compete against each other and the family who throws the most people win.

 

Our Greatest Adventure

Recently the 5/6’s went on an excursion to the Old Treasury Building and the Parliament House!    

We learnt about the history of Australia and the culture of our people. It was the greatest adventure we have had yet!

Parliament house was really fascinating. One thing that I noticed is that there was a lot of gold throughout the building. At the time they built the parliament house it was THE GOLD RUSH in Victoria.
