Bangarra’s Unaipon Performance at the Sydney Opera House

By Head of Department, Learning Support – David Parnell

A group of First Nation Boys from Waverley College recently attended the Sydney Opera House to see Bangarra’s production of Unaipon, based on the man whose image appears on the $50 note – a renowned Aboriginal inventor, writer, lecturer and supporter of Aboriginal Self Determination. The show was a beautiful and spectacular modern interpretation of Aboriginal dance.

It was a wonderful opportunity for the boys to meet and speak with Shirley Chowdhary, CEO of the GO Foundation, which generously supports the education of a number of Aboriginal boys at Waverley.

Baxter Seinor, TJ Speedy-Coe and Dane Towns represented the College well.
