Now they are all on the Greyhound bus to Adelaide. They will arrive in Adelaide tomorrow morning. ... See MoreSee Less

Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin !!

I'm 64 and I remember doing this when I was in primary school, classics never fade.

Junior Primary have been reading the book, Click, Clack, Moo, Cows That Type.
They have been doing activities related to farm animals as part of their learning. Today they made butter from cream! They spread the butter onto the bread, added jam and ate it. The class said it was delicious and it tasted like butter!

The majority of students at Mimili are Anangu and their first language is Pitjantjatjara or Yankunytjatjara, as this is usually the language spoken at home. The students are only formally introduced to English when they start school.

A significant factor for Anangu Communities and Schools is the transient nature of the population. The School can have students who attend for periods of days or weeks and then return to their home communities.

The Anangu people tend to live in family groups within Mimili Anangu Community or on their Homelands.
