Summary

"In Mparntwe (Alice Springs) our Ampe-kenhe Ahelhe ampe mape (Children’s Ground children) have been learning about the sky, the weather and the seasons in their first language (Arrernte) from the right cultural educators in their family. Mothers, Grandparents and aunties sat with their children to create these illustrations both on Country and at our Community Centre in an intergenerational learning space of safety, love and inclusion. First Nations people see numeracy and literacy as a priority for the next generation – in both First Language and English."...website.
