Speakers and writers of Guugu Yimidhirr have been working with composer and music educator, Joshua McHugh, to make beautiful Guugu Yimidhirr children’s songs.
The project is developing urgently needed material to support children’s choirs, which are highly effective language learning and transmission activities.
It also creates important opportunities for Guugu Yimidhirr translators and writers to extend the language corpus.
The PLC has also continued to provide more generalised ongoing support to Hope Vale school’s Guugu Yimidhirr programme in the latter half of 2016.
The results of the programme have been overwhelming so far; the PLC looks forward to seeing the usage of Guugu Yimidhirr continue to grow as more and more students become involved.
