Aboriginal didgeridoo player visits Year 7
Year 7 recently attended an incursion with special guest Charlie McMahon. Charlie is a professional musician and an advocate for the education and preservation of Aboriginal culture. He is widely known for his association with the band Midnight Oil, playing didgeridoo in many of their performances, but he is also passionate about passing on knowledge of Aboriginal kinship, customs, music and art to upcoming generations.
Our students were enriched with knowledge and understanding of the significant Aboriginal heritage in Australia. We were also treated to some amazing musical performances where some of us were asked to come up and perform too!
