They say its takes a village to raise a child and at Narrogin Primary School, Aboriginal and Islander Education Officer and local Elder Basil Kickett is integral to our village. Pop Basil is a wealth of knowledge. He is generous in sharing his expertise on local Noongar culture. He is an incredible role model and support person to both Indigenous and non-Indigenous children in the school.
During NAIDOC Week 2020, he shared stories about his life growing up and the children were absolutely enthralled. The artworks and responses they have produced demonstrate how much they absorbed about history and culture from this experience. We have produced this book to share with the community and students now and into the future.
