Hello, Giinagay, Hai
Bush Tucker Track New Signage
At Scotts Head PS we offer an inclusive framework to support the cognitive, emotional, social, physical and spiritual wellbeing of all students, which measurably improves individual and collective wellbeing. We have a coherent, sequenced plan for cross-curriculum delivery that ensures systematic teaching and learning through our Bilingual Bahasa Indonesia Program, Indigenous Education through our Bush Tucker Track and Sustainability through our Gardening Programs.
The Gumbaynggirr Pathways to Learning Project- Bush Tucker Track is a learning resource, in the form of a walk trail through a restored remnant forest; promoting biodiversity values through the “accessible” concept of bush tucker and medicinal plants. The focus is building stronger links with local elders, community members, national park rangers; bringing a greater understanding of local Indigenous culture, historical perspectives and knowledge systems within the school and the wider community.
The project, that was started in 2015, has now reached a new milestone with the installation of the Bush Tucker signs with QR codes. When the QR code is scanned it transports you to our webpage which gives extra information about the plants and their uses and also an audio file that has been recorded using by the students using their voices. We now have created a self-guided walk trail through the forest, with interpretive signage to educate trail users about the endemic vegetation, its importance to Aboriginal people and possible current uses, and the value of maintaining a bio-diverse environment for native wildlife and vegetation, as well as humans.
We are very proud of our Bush Tucker Track.
Congratulations to the students who have made it through to the Mid-North Coast Swimming Carnival at Coffs Harbour Memorial Pool this Thursday 25 February.
Thanks, yaarri yaraang, terima kasih.
