Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

There are so many interesting Dreaming stories to read! One story we read was called ‘Dirrangun’, which is a Dreaming from the Bunjalung and Githavul people connected to the Grafton region of New South Wales. It tells two versions of the same story, but both versions are about the powerful witch-woman Dirangun, and her part in creating the landmarks of the area. The artist is a Bundjalung Woman, Bronwyn Bancroft. https://www.bronwynbancroft.com Feel free to swap out the artwork for any artwork created someone who your students are currently learning about.
