Koori Mail: Let’s combine classroom learning with learning on country for kids


"Nanna" Ningali Lawford-Smith

Education in the early years is incredibly important for all children. This year’s theme for National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day, August 4, is ‘We Play, We Learn, We Belong’.

The 2019 Children’s Day Ambassador is Nanna from the children’s animated series Little J & Big Cuz. The voice of Nanna, Ningali Lawford, reflects on what playing, learning and belonging mean to Aboriginal children.
