Special focus on Aboriginal Culture at Macquarie College

On Friday 4 November, both Senior School and Junior School held special Chapel programs with a focus on Aboriginal Culture in Australia.

Pastor Johnny Murison is a well known Aboriginal Seventh-day Adventist Church Pastor, who has featured on the “Beyond the Search” TV series.

Pr Johnny talked about Aboriginal culture from his Christian perspective, sharing information and photos with our students about bush tucker, Aboriginal rock art, and how Aboriginals lived in the Australian outback.

He then shared a special presentation to Year 1 classes, and students who identify as Aboriginal or of Torres Straight Islander descent. Pr Johnny played the didgeridoo, talked about hunting techniques, and demonstrated face painting with the students.   Click Here to see a gallery of images from Friday’s event.

Pr Johnny said that we can learn a lot about God’s character from nature. However, he explained that the ultimate revelation of God, is Jesus Christ who calls us to follow Him.
