"We have very much enjoyed looking at the artefacts and resources from the indigenous library. Having them in the classroom is better in terms of having easy access—more learning opportunities. The students have had a genuine interest in our sessions overall and it has prompted some really good questions. It has also given the students some really good ideas for their dioramas. These resources provide a whole different (positive/cultural) perspective for children, than some of the school materials and resources that have been used in the past."
