It was not looking so good for our activity in the beginning as the volleyball net had somehow disappeared.. but lucky for us I knew where to find a spare one. Thank you to Nino and Tom for putting it up for us.

We had a great turn out and it was a very fun game to watch! I am looking forward to many more games over the summer months. πŸ˜€

Boomerang Painting! August 8th

Yesterday afternoon’s activity was Boomerang Painting.

The traditional Australian boomerang has been historically used for hunting, as well as sport and entertainment. They are commonly thought of as an Australian iconic symbol,Β and come in various shapes and sizes with all sorts of beautiful, colourful designs. In Aboriginal culture it is common to see the style of painting where a lot of tiny dots are perfectly painted to create specific shapes. These shapes or symbols often represent things relevant to aboriginal culture.

We had the creative freedom to come up with our own unique designs or follow the more traditional Aboriginal designs. A lot of imagination and colour was used. The finished product looked beautiful.

We started off with a warm up and then Mina taught us some classic hip hop tricks and moves.

She broke down the moves to make it easy for us to follow. We did ‘The Running Man’, ‘The Cabbage Patch’ and some fancy criss-cross footwork.

 

 

We also learnt a short routine using a lot of the moves we had practiced in the warm up.

 

It was a great afternoon. I am all ready looking forward to Mina coming back next month. Keep an eye on the August activity calendar to see when our next lesson is πŸ™‚
