Be You Pilbara

From Monday 12 April to Wednesday 14 April 2021 the Be You Pilbara and Kimberley Team including Jacob Tyndall, Geraldine Shadforth, Maxine Chi, Jenny Walsh, Jordie Nirens and Rebecca David met in Broome to the community. The Pilbara team including Rebecca Johnson who works at Puntukurnu Aboriginal Medical Service workshop and develop the content for the e-book and Cultural Actions Catalogue which will become a Be You resource for AIEO, ATA, educators and other members of the learning in Newman and Davina Chapman who works at Mawarnkarra Health Service in Roebourne in the Pilbara also flew up to Broome.

The workshop brought us together to develop the resources from interviews we conducted specifically around cultural activities that could assist educators to learn about the communities in which they live and teach, and how Aboriginal and Islander Education Officers (AIEOs) and Aboriginal Teaching Assistants (ATAs) and communities can be involved with sharing their community and cultural knowledge.

A lot of input was put into the workshop and the importance of AEIO, ATA, and EA was a strong theme. The other main themes from the e-book will include, 2-way learning, AIEO and ATA, flexible and culturally responsive education, identify and build connections and walking softly.

The whole team would like to thank everyone for taking the time to share their stories and thoughts on what the e-book should look like. Keep watch for our next newsletter in May!
