Culture’s Back – Schools

Suitable for all stages of Primary, Culture’s Back is a brand new version of the popular Culture Club workshop!

The workshop aims to promote and support cultural diversity, inclusiveness, well-being and social harmony.

“The students learnt a lot and had so much fun whilst doing it.  I have even mentioned to Emma that Year 2 Australian Curriculum links directly to her program so it would be fabulous for her to do more school incursions!”
