More than 200 kindergarten students connected with the land at a bush kinder jamboree at Rumbalara yesterday.

Children from more than five centres attended the event, hosted by Save The Children.

Save the Children’s Andrea Woodward said the jamboree was a chance for the community to experience the bush kinder curriculum it had been running at Rumbalara every Tuesday since last year.

‘‘We’re introducing them to a bit of the indigenous culture, some bush tucker with the damper, the land with Landcare, music with the clapping stick and boomerangs,’’ she said.

The jamboree was a joint partnership between Save The Children and Rumbalara, organised by Ms Woodward, Cheryl Bourke and Winjirra Patten.

‘‘The bush kindergarten for Save the Children and Rumbalara has bought the two organisations together and it’s great for the community,’’ Ms Woodward said.
