Aboriginal Children's Games

While we have always valued the inclusion of games in our workshops, our new exclusively games-focused workshop was a huge success at a recent Tennis SA event and at Mercedes College where we launched their ‘AFL and Parntu’ unit of study.

Each game is played with full acknowledgement of the Aboriginal or Torres Strait Island Country of its origin, with information and maps used to help locate players to each game’s Cultural roots, rules, and geographical location.

A station for each of our 8 games is set up in a large open space (an oval is ideal but inside games can also be arranged) and groups of students rotate between stations.

The games require both teamwork and solo effort, several are precision based (to develop hunting skills) as well as jumping, dodging, ball skills.

We can cater for any age group from kindergarten up.
