Another focus for the National Science Week theme of Food Different by Design is looking at WA’s bush tucker. Mrs Cogger invited Natasha Bowden from SERCUL to present an incursion about the bush tucker found around the Canning River.
The Noongar people used Banksia cones to transport fire as they moved on country.
Coastal Pigface was used to heal cuts and wounds.
The Noongar people used kangaroo poop as an adhesive when making tools.
Natasha interacted with each group to share her knowledge about the different plants. She is a welcome visitor to St Emilie’s. The students will use this new bush tucker knowledge to write captions to accompany the photos that they will be taking in our bushland for the Chevron Focus Environment photography competition. The students photos will been display at the Open Night.
