Did you know?

Sydney is built upon some of the oldest occupied territory in the world. Before it was named Sydney, it was called Gadi.  Gadigal means men of the grass tree.  Gadigelleon means women of the grass tree. 

The Gadi (grass tree or xanthorrhoea australis)  is a source of weaving material, resin that is used as a powerful adhesive used in boat making, and nectar for drinking, among other things.

The Cadi can live for 300-450 years, however land clearing at European settlement has severely reduced the number of trees.

The process of making art. Lessons in life.

Inspired by stained glass windows, L aged 7, has planned and created this pony painting. Taking time to arrange ideas and organise materials before realising the final art work is an important and transferable skill.  Children often rush their work because adults rush them. Let's give them time to learn and enjoy the process.  Here L has also learned about colour mixing and values, composition, brush techniques.    ...and had fun doing it.
