Excursion: Bilya Kaatijin Performance

Students from Kindy to Year 6 are visiting the Spare Parts Puppet Theatre to watch a performance by the Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company called Bilya Kaatijin.

Bilya Kaatijin (which means “Fresh Water Knowledge” in Noongar) is the fourth and final story in Yirra Yaakin’s Kaatijin series.

Connecting stories from Noongar land (south-west Western Australia) to Wonguktha land (the northern Goldfields), Aotearoa (New Zealand) and the Kikuyu people of Kenya, Bilya Kaatijin teaches us about the importance of water to First Nations people around the world.
