What a fantastic start to our journey with our new Sisters and Brothers at Wyndham Park Primary School.
We are working with students in Grade 3 and Grade 6 every Wednesday until September 4th. The students engaged really well with Valanga’s story and asked so many diverse questions such as; Why is there racism? What’s your favourite animal? Are you married? Where are your grandparents and how did you escape from the police?
As well as the storytelling we had a little cipher session with kids getting up to dance and beatbox whilst Yung Philly rocked a 5 word challenge with words from the students.
We felt very welcomed today and we are looking forward to breaking down the barriers of talking about racism, why it exists and what we can all do about it.
