Last week the educators attended a training session; How to include Aboriginal art in our Program with Jess from Koori Curriculum. Jess inspired us to use these aspects of Aboriginal culture to present learning opportunities that reflect the children’s interests.
After this training the Wumbat team decided ‘story rocks’ (rock/stones depicting images and used to tell a story) would be a great addition to their program. They used them at the literacy table to tell the story of ‘Going on a Bear Hunt”! Children were able to sequence the story for the pictures independently, building their understanding of a structure of a narrative.

On Friday 17th November 20 Deloitte volunteers and Michelle from Seed Harvest Spoon finished off more of our back playground project. We have almost all our plants in now and the back playground is looking amazing! We want to say a big thank you to them for all their help and another thank you to the Inner West Council who made this all possible with awarding us a Stronger Communities Grant in 2016.

To help the children understand their responsibility to look after our new playground and help the plants grown, we have explained we are all “Guardians of the Garden”. We discussed with each group of children what this means and they have been looking after our plants extremely well – watering them every day, resisting the temptation to pick flowers and also ensuring they only walk on the paths! Our intention is this will continue to grow their love and respect for nature, as we must first fall in love with nature to want to then care and protect it. We look forward to fostering this in the children that attend Styles Street.

On Saturday 11th November 22 parents from our Styles Street Community came together to start the upgrade and greening of our new playground. With the help of a Stronger Communities Grant from Leichhardt Council we have been able to plan and now create many more natural elements into our beautiful and big back playground. Saturday 11th was the first stage of the upgrade where we prepared the soil for planting the trees. This was by no means an easy task as we moved 20 combined cubic meters of soil and mulch up to the playground for the new garden areas, created a new digging patch and moved 4 huge sand stone boulders to start the creating of our new meeting place for the children to use. We are very proud of our efforts and are looking forward with excitement to our final volunteers day on Friday 17th November with 20 Deloitte volunteers!

Recently we held a very special afternoon tea to celebrate the launch of our
very first Reconciliation Action Plan. By formalising our commitment to
reconciliation through developing our action plan we are taking our next
steps towards reconciliation.
We welcomed two very special guests Deborah Lennis, Community
Development Officer – Aboriginal Programs, of Inner West Council and local
Elder Uncle Max Eulo. Cherie spoke about how we have worked as a team,
with families and council in developing our RAP. She noted that reconciliation
was not just about this day it is about the journey and how we work towards
providing children with opportunities to learn about Aboriginal and Torres
Strait Islander culture and history going forward in meaningful ways.
Together with the children we acknowledged the land and our special guests
by singing our Acknowledgement to Country song.
Deborah performed a Welcome to Country in local Wangal language and
praised us as being one of only four centre’s nationally with a completed
Reconciliation Action Plan. She also taught us a Torres Strait Islander action
song which the children enjoyed learning.
Uncle Max performed a traditional smoking ceremony. A smoking ceremony
is one of the most signifcant ancient ceremonies performed by Aboriginal
and Torres Strait Islander people. The ceremony involves smouldering various
native plants to produce smoke which are believed to have cleansing
properties and the ability to ward off bad spirits. The children were very
curious and focused on Uncle Max.
We are pleased to have a Reconciliation Action Plan and realise to this is only
the beginning but we are looking forward to learning and growing more in
our knowledge and contribution to Reconciliation.

This year we are celebrating Book Week at styles street with a variety of fun and engaging opportunities for children and families.

As a community we have our very own book store from Berkelouw Books Leichhardt for families to purchase books from and for the centre to raise money to spend on books! We are also raising funds for our very own street library!

In the classrooms we have asked the children to bring in their favourite stories, which we have been reading together all week. These stories have sparked many conversations about imaginary places and characters and even inspired new art from the children!

We asked each class to vote on their favourite book and the Wumbat children told us the enjoy ‘The Three little Pigs’, the Gugan children love ‘Fox in Socks’ by Dr Seuss and the Burru Children cherish devouring ‘The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers. Emily, one of our Burru educators, created a beautiful illustration to represent these books, which we will have in our centre library after book week to remind us of children’s love for literature.

At Styles street we LOVE books not only for the literacy learning within them but their capacity to allow us to dream, imagine and  learn about the world. Books have the power to change our lives and the world!
