Millars Well Primary School students celebrated Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal cultures last week by taking part in fun activities, such as kangaroo cooking and boomerang painting classes.
Karratha resident Nina Stewart helped the young students cook kangaroo tails, which were first singed in the fire to remove the hairs before being wrapped in damp newspaper and cooked in a fire pit for one-to-two hours.
Other parts of the kangaroo were used to make a stew and kebabs, but the tail is clearly a favourite part of the animal.
“Everyone goes mad for kangaroo tail,” Nina said.
Other activities on the day included Torres Strait Islander storytelling through music and dance, language lessons and face painting.
Students were also able to paint their own designs on T-shirts donated by Karratha Kmart and climb a transportable rock-climbing wall that the Perth company Radrock brought to the school.
