The students enjoyed the chance to get creative, using the examples of traditional Aboriginal art including the symbols used for goanna and kangaroo tracks and the method of dot painting.

They also took advantage of the opportunity to practice speaking English during the activity, talking about boomerangs, the innate artistic ability that every person has, languages from around the world and the different dialects and accents in different locations. It was a relaxing activity and a perfect way to chill out on the morning after Student Night at Cheeky Monkeys!
