Halls Creek community performance

Halls Creek students proudly performed "I am Australian" in three languages at local community concert. 

More than 250 kindergarten, primary school and high school aged children worked very hard with the g-oz instructors to prepare a performance like no other!

With the support of The Funding Network and in partnership with Halls Creek District High School, on Thursday August 4 the Halls Creek students proudly performed ‘I am Australian’, sung in English, Kija and Jaru for the first time.

Women from the Kimberley Language Resource Centre in Halls Creek translated the chorus into the two local languages and the unique rendition of this iconic song reduced many audience members to tears.

The performance aimed to raise the profiles of these talented students within their own communities and encouraged the students to feel connected to their cultural roots.
