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.
