We Are Connected – Year 2SS

As part of the Year 2 integrated topic ‘We Are Connected’, students have been exploring the ways in which Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples maintain special connections to a particular place. The students in the photos are researching Australian places that come from Aboriginal words and the language group that each name belongs to. Did you know that Gilgandra is an Aboriginal word meaning ‘long waterhole’? On your next road trip if you visit a place that may have an Aboriginal name think about what it could mean.
