Local Aboriginal Fish and Eel Traps

This documentary explains how fish and eel traps were made, how they worked, and why they were so important for the Gunditjmara people who lived around Lake Condah (Tae Rak). Year 8 students – Alannah, Kirsty, Molly, Amy and Aimee produced this documentary after time spent researching the topic, visiting Lake Condah and speaking with local  Budj Bim tour guides.

Kurtonitj Tour with staff and students

On 11th October 52 students and four staff went on an excursion to Mt Eccles, Lake Condah Mission and Kurtonitj (which is a better place to see the fish traps and stone houses), ending the Kurtonitj tour at the Bessiebelle Woolsthorpe Rd. Year 8G had been researching indigenous foods, stone houses and the fish and eel traps of our local Kanawinka area. The excursion brought their learning to life.
