Carbon footprint murals at Cherbourg

Cherbourg State School and the IKC are working with community members to produce 5 large murals with educational materials to support them to speak to the community about what people mean by carbon footprint, carbon sequestration, pollution, and what our responsibility is regarding these matters. We are discovering that what Cherbourg people used to know and practice in the past might be better practice than what is happening today, and that the 'new green' can learn from the 'old black'. We will be gathering community knowledge, and creating some exciting new educational materials to use in communities like Cherbourg. The project honours the elders and their knowledge and provides opportunities for children to listen to their elders and also to share some of their new knowledge with them. This project must be finished by mid June and will be launched then. We are excited and will post some pictures as soon as the project goes into full swing next week.

Hello Everyone,
What a great IKC conference with the wonderful family we all belong to. Here we all are. We have eaten together, studied and laughed together, and today we all go home.
Each day has been very helpful, but the day in State Library was amazing. I am so thankful for all the help and encouragement provided by SLQ, especially the Heritage Collection staff.
Last night at the opening of the Meriba Gidhal was very special

Time to catch up after the conference

Hello Friends,
It has been over a month since we all met in Cairns. I am just looking back at this and wondering how to do this all over again. After trying to figure it out, I tried the manual, but still couldn't find the right buttons to press to add your blogs to my page. Finally,, after a lot of trial and error, I found the right button.
I hope you are all well, and that the fishing is good,

IKC Administrator's conference in Cairns

This week at Cairns at the IKC administrator's conference has been a very useful time. I have enjoyed meeting other administrators and hearing their stories.
The training that we have received has been relevant, practical and inspirational. I have new ideas that I will follow up on, and understand more about the role of IKC administrator.

I hope the opportunity to put this into practise continues on.
