Lan­guage launch

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - LIFESTYLE -

IT was a day full of colour, fun and lan­guage in Moss­man on Satur­day for the launch of the Kuku Yalanji lan­guage classes at the Moss­man State Pri­mary School. Paint­ing, food, song, dance and smil­ing faces were every­where as months of plan­ning and con­sul­ta­tion came to fruition. The Moss­man school will be­come the first in the re­gion to teach the indige­nous lan­guage in for­malised lessons. Head of teach­ing and learn­ing, Sharon Case, has been work­ing closely with the Kuku Yalanji Lan­guage Ad­vi­sory Group to get the pro­gram off the ground.
