TAMWORTH High's Gamilaraay students have returned from "an awesome cultural experience" provided at a recent language camp.
The Tamworth High Girls Academy travelled to Lake Keepit for the Gamilaraay language and culture camp hosted by the Aboriginal Education Consultative Group.
Tamworth Girls Academy development officer Kim Knox described the camp as "an awesome cultural experience enjoyed by all who attended".
Students and staff from all parts of regional New South Wales participated in a range of activities delivered by strong cultural knowledge holders including: Dreamtime stories, song dance, artefact and message stick making and history, traditional bush tucker and medicine presentation, night sky stories and an astrology session, and language and learning to sing the Acknowledgement to Country in local Gamilaraay Language.
An extensive amount of knowledge was passed on in the two-day camp that will continue to be passed on and practiced in the community.
Tamworth Girls Academy students loved the camp and felt they walked away with "a vast amount of knowledge to share with their peers".
The highlight of the camp was learning to sing Acknowledgement to Country in local Gamilaraay language.
