Southern Riverina news - - NEWS -

Ber­ri­gan Pub­lic stu­dents had a won­der­ful day cel­e­brat­ing the school’s re­cent Abo­rig­i­nal Cul­tural Day.

The school wel­comed a spe­cial vis­i­tor, Mark Sad­dler, who is a Wi­rad­juri man who vis­its class­rooms to share his love of Abo­rig­i­nal history, art and sto­ries.

Ber­ri­gan School prin­ci­pal Gayle An­driske said Mr Sad­dler had all stu­dents en­grossed in find­ing out about Aus­tralia’s Abo­rig­i­nal her­itage.

She said he brought to life the Abo­rig­i­nal cul­ture through sto­ries, mu­sic, art and games.

‘‘It was a won­der­ful and worth­while ex­pe­ri­ence for our stu­dents,’’ she said.

‘‘I heard so many pos­i­tive com­ments from the stu- dents, and Mark was su­per im­pressed with their in­ter­est, ques­tions and dis­cus­sions.’’
