Areas of study

In this Special Project in Yolngu Language and Culture unit, students will choose their own topic and work with texts based on that topic.

This unit further expands on the knowledge and skills obtained in the Yolngu Languages and Culture 1 and 2 units, and further develops competencies in Yolngu and Gupapuyngu languages, culture and history and traditions in both past and present contexts.
