More from the Gulgi-barra performance at the Muruma Aboriginal Space at Olympic Park. It was so moving to see our students perform in Dharug, Gundungurra along with some Aboriginal classic songs. The Gulgi-barra performance was stunning! Thank you to all the parents of our choir students for allowing them to attend until so late into the evening- hopefully it was an event they will remember for years to come.

Our St Canice’s school choir performed beautifully at the Murama Youth Summit, in a very chilly Sydney Olympic Park, last Thursday evening. Here they are singing Yil Lull by Joe Geia. We felt privileged to be asked to be a part of a such memorable evening, rich in beauty and culture, and strong with indigenous recognition and connectedness. What an honour it was for all of us to watch SAND STORIES - Gulgi-barra By Miriki Performing Arts. The dance work was stunningly atmospheric and the children were completely captivated.
