Nganmarriyanga School Book Project
Ku kananganthan ka me ngala-ngala kanthin wurrah
The emu has big feet
Late last year Dub Leffler travelled to Nganmarriyanga School to develop a bilingual book project. 107 students from the local school participated in the project. Students spent a week creating the book's illustrations developing their skills with artistic workshops and exercises. Dub and the students worked together to develop a written narrative. Dub then designed a book incorporating the students' artwork and writing. Corrugated Iron engaged 2 school staff, Jeanette Cook & Linda Munar to translate the story created by Dub and the students into the local language Murrinh-patha.
Copies of the book are now printed for the students and school library.
