The Dreaming Seats

Nylah reading about Ceramics in the Dreaming Seat.

With a great deal of gratitude our visual arts students are using the dreaming seats in Pavillion 4 to read, imagine and discuss ideas.

The dreaming seats have been created using two distinct designs and the meanings have been outlined below.

Mina Mina Dreaming design is in room 4003. The design by artist Pauline Napangardi Gallagher, of the Napangardi skin group. It is inspired by the Mina Mina ceremonial site, far to the west of Yuendumu near Lake Mackay and the WA border.  It tells the story of a group of ancestral ‘karnta’ (women) who travel from west to east, dancing in the dreamtime. 

The ‘kirda’ (owners) of this Dreaming are Napangardi/Napanangka women and Japangardi/Japanangka men; the area is sacred to Napangardi and Napanangka women.

And the Yankirri Jukurrpa (Emu Dreaming), in room 4001, represents Ngarlikurlangu, north of Yuendumu. The emu travelled to the rockhole at Ngarlikurlangu to find water. This dreamtime belongs to Jangala/Jampijinpa men and Nangala /Nampijinpa women. In contemporary warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa, associated sites and other elements.

The full story, including a biography of the artists in posted next to the dreaming seats in Pavillion 4.

Many thanks to Roz Edmunds for creating The Dreaming Seats.

Year 6 Students Visit for the Pathfinder Project.

Transitions are varied and complex. Students undertake several important transitions at key points during their education; moving from preschool to secondary school, between mainstream and specialist school settings and finally from school to postschool options..

The Pathfinder Project’s outcomes 

  • Experience curriculum possibilities
  • Learn about life at college
  • Be inspired by numerous career options
  • Increase interest in schoolwork and learning from years 7-10
  • Improve self -Esteem and confidence
  • Develop new friendship

Australian Science Olympiades

During Week 3 of this semester a small group of talented LTC science students sat the Australian Science Olympiad examinations in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Earth and Environmental Science.

Winter Walk to School Week

Ride, walk, scoot or skate to school during Winter Walk to School Week from 9 to 13 August. You can incorporate physical activity into your daily commute to school for a healthier lifestyle. You are encouraged to not only participate during the week but to make active travel a lifestyle even during the winter months. Here are some handy tips to help get you started:

  • Be prepared – check the forecast the night before.
  • Layer up – make sure you’re wearing gloves, scarf, beanie and lots of layers!
  • Take a hot beverage – have a hot drink in a thermos ready for when you arrive.
  • Get a buddy – team up with family/friends/neighbours to walk or ride too. Using a buddy system is not only motivating but creates a safer environment.
