✏LITERARY AWARDS📃

Congratulations to our budding authors who received awards in this year's Max Fatchen Literary Awards!

Each class studied 2 or 3 different styles of poetry before students selected the style they liked most, and created a piece of poetry independently on the theme: France - Paris, the city of light.

Place awards were presented by former principal and competition coordinator, Peter Lane, as part of Frenchfest yesterday; with monetary prizes generously donated by local sponsors - Taylor's, Mount Horrocks, and Grosset wines.

The smiles on their faces tell the rest of the story!

❤ "We are Auburn Primary School and we live, learn and play on Ngadjuri Country." ❤

And what better way to acknowledge and celebrate this than to create a wall mural that tells our story - a story of a community who come together to share, listen, learn from and with each other; and who are dedicated to writing new stories as we move forward together.

Scott Rathman, Rusted Tin - Contemporary Aboriginal Arts, how can we thank you enough!? We love your work and the way you go about it. You shared, you listened, you guided us to explore our own connection with this Country and place. And honoured all perspectives in designing an artwork that welcomes, includes, acknowledges and celebrates all that is Auburn Primary School. The kids are thrilled to recognise elements they contributed in the artwork and are in awe of how you drew it all together. You are quite the inspiration... and a mighty talented artist to boot!

A heartfelt thankyou to Aunty Pat Waria, Ngadjuri Elder, and Sonya Rankine, Aboriginal Community Education Officer and Ngadjuri artist, for your welcome, stories, education and support. It was important for us to be true to the history and culture of the traditional custodians of this land, and what better way to learn than through your wonderful storytelling and drawings.

A special thanks also to past students and Auburn residents, Tarkyn and Zahli Allan, who took the time to come back to visit and be involved; and dedicated Dad, Paul Kinnear, and his friend Simon at SA Quality Sheds, for the very kind loan of a scissor lift to get the job done.

For now, we have some pics of the process and product. But for the full story, you will have to wait! The mural, complete with its story to share, will be officially opened by Aunty Pat on Monday 20 September. 🤩

Our Dads are a shy lot so photos of our day on Friday have been shared via SeeSaw. An enormous thankyou to our Dads and other significant males who have wholeheartedly supported our efforts to build the home- school partnership with 16/18 families able to attend! Amazing! Our Mums are an even shyer lot, but we snuck one picture to thank them for cooking the men lunch!

Great day! Thanks to Birdie for the steak👌🏻
