Raising awareness about the value and use of native grasslands, seasonal wetlands, grassy woodlands & other ecosystems on the Victorian Volcanic Plains

Teacher’s Pet

echidnaWhen it comes to raising the awareness of our natural environment we often wonder how to connect with various generations. Here is a link to a story, Teacher’s Pet, cleverly animated and told through the eyes and voices of children at the Dimboola Primary School. It looks like the children would have had a lot of fun making this film.

An eagle enlists the help of a group of primary school students to return a lost baby echidna home. This short animated film was a collaboration between Delkaia Aboriginal Best Start and thirteen Koorie students from Dimboola Primary School from Prep to Grade 6.

The students were heavily involved in the film supplying all the artwork, voices and even photographing the school to be used as backgrounds in the film.
