Aboriginal dancer Sean Choolburra Visits St Mary's

Indigenous dancer Sean Choolburra gave an exciting and interactive dance performance to students of St Mary's school recently.

Students were also invited to participate in didgeridoo playing and fire making. 

After the show, students had the opportunity to have their face painted with traditional clay.

Aboriginal Education Worker Christine Hamilton said it was a fun and entertaining cultural experience for the staff and students at St Mary’s. 

"I'd like to say Mandaang Guwu (thank you), Sean," she said.


Aboriginal Contact Teacher Siobhan Roberts said the visit provided an engaging and inspiring performance by a man so obviously proud of his culture and heritage and passionate about sharing it with future generations.

Kindy student Harry Collins said he was "awestruck" by the performance.

It was absolutely  unbelievable," he said.” Harry's Mum Amy said he came home raving and sharing in great detail the fire being lit with two sticks and the gumboot dance.
