Year 11 Modern History
Students in Year 11 Modern History are currently studying the Australian Indigenous Rights Movement since 1967. They participated in a workshop with acclaimed Aboriginal artist Judith Jenuarrie Warrie. Last year, her work lit the sails of Sydney Opera House, projected nightly on to one of Australia’s most iconic structures at sunset as part of water light show Badu Gili. She has spoken internationally, featured in countless publications and served on state and federal committees, raising the profile of other artists while developing a career of her own. Jenuarrie enriched the students understanding of Indigenous culture and her experiences as a strong Aboriginal woman. Members of the school community can enjoy her book Gift of Knowledge: the Selected works of Jenuarrie, ‘Koinjmal Woman’ which is now in the SMCC library.
