When the students from Goodooga Central School visited IGS earlier this year, students from both schools participated in an art workshop with Wiradjuri Artist and IGS Aunty in Residence Bianca Caldwell.
Together they worked on two pieces reflecting the friendship and growing connection between the two schools: one in urban Ultimo on Gadigal Land and one out bush on Yuwaalaraay Country in Goodooga.
The painting created by IGS students reflects the cityscape of Sydney, and is now hanging in the corridors of reception at Goodooga Central School.
The Goodooga students have also finished their painting, which portrays their journey to Sydney from the bush through their river country, the stars and meeting new people in the city surrounded by buildings.
This beautiful gift from the students at Goodooga will be delivered to IGS later this year by IGS Coordinator of Indigenous Partnerships Lucy Howard-Shibuya and is another example of the friendship developing between our two schools.
