Perth Recap

Thank you to Stephanie who recorded some of our professional development work together in the ” Dig in the Mud ” (July 11-15, 2016 ) in Perth. We adventurers sang, storied and transitioned to outdoor play. Then   ‘Doll’ making, all the while “releasing the storyteller within “. We learned how to fulfil our individual destiny making unique felted slippers. We made healthy compost and studied the components of the Biodynamic medicines for healing our earth. Exploring the land in the hills outside Perth brought joy and mirth to our exploration. We made butter, cheese and sourdough bread, later we wove our biographical rags and “dry felted” our destiny slippers. Finally a celebratory festival choreographed by All and embellished by natural dying thanks to queen Lindy . Our daily studies of all topics related to early childhood care-education deepened our knowledge of ourselves. We made our own colourful historical journals to record our stories and visions of the stand alone week. Thanks to all brought teary acknowledgement : our visionary coordinator Jenny Hill , our generous hostess Rose, and our tea/lunch detail mother : Lesley. I give thanks to the group for their hearty appreciation of my offerings, and gifts from the Nature Kingdom too. As we made our last embraces, we pledged to enjoy learning together again.

Perth Response

“Trudie and I have incorporated a few things into our kindy program and so far they are going well and warmly received – but most lovingly appreciated from us has been the confidence to give the process of sourdough a go in our kindy – the children have named our creature “Poi Dough” – baby poi feasts on the flour and liquid and special treats to become the batter until finally poi is ready to eat again and be turned into our bread the following week. Our jar of cream magically turned into a ball of sunshine whilst everyone was playing and randomly shaking the jar, my what yumminess the butter was, and buttermilk for our tea and Poi……

The other aspect we love is that we have now incorporated a monday bush walk and picnic where the adventurers follow tracks, watch for kangaroos, listen for the birds & crush rocks to find crystals and lastly logs to sit on to share our food. Thursday is now our bush play day, where we stay in one designated area and build cubbies, climb on fallen trees and learn to be brave and courageous, look at the small things and the large….it has been a wonderful first week.
The week even ended with an improvised story about a band of brave adventurers who ended out the garden gate and off out into the bush beyond, and what did they discover…….?

Thankyou everyone for a wonderful inspiring week.”
