Burketown and Mornington Island School Visit – ‘Show Me Your World’


​On Monday, we were lucky enough to host students and staff from far north Queensland State Schools; Burketown and Mornington Island.

As part of the ‘Show Me Your World’ tour, students from remote communities in Queensland visit schools in the metropolitan areas as part of a cultural exchange.

Palm Beach State School hosted the group for the morning with students taking part in classroom activities including painting a mural together.

Palm Beach State School students performed a dance called ‘Spiderman’ and students from Burketown and Mornington performed traditional dances. Slideshow presentations depicting each region were also shared.

Thank you to Mr Bowden for coordinating this visit. Cultural exchange and awareness is always a great learning opportunity.
