Junior School Resource Centre

On the final day of Summer Term the Junior School were privileged to host indigenous author Boori (Monty) Pryor. Boori engaged the year 4 and 5 boys with his oral storytelling, demonstrating to the boys the power of exaggeration and how through storytelling you can exaggerate an everyday life event and turn it into an entertaining story. All that is required is imagination, adjectives and adverbs! He based the presentation on his novel My Girragundji.

Boori finished the presentation with a didgeridoo performance. Boori is an accomplished musician and has performed Welcome to Country for both Pope John Paul II at the Beautification of Mary McKillop and Wurundjeri Welcome to Michael Jackson in Melbourne.
