Cultural Connections

The following description is about the artwork created by Linda Loo and our Year 6 students, created as apart of our Cultural Connections program with the Stephen Michael Foundation.

We acknowledge the Whadjuk Noongar Boodja our school is on. 

The green background represents the colour of Fremantle Primary School. The colour green has an association with nature and also represents tranquility, balances our emotions. It also creates a sense of feeling safe and secure. Green gives us health and hope with a promise of growth, prosperity and good luck. The U shape represents the people. Coloured hands represent the school children and teachers. The designs on the children’s hands represent their home, travel and love and friendship. The circle with U shapes represent meeting places, the meeting place is where the community and the school come create, and have a strong, relationship, sharing stories, based on love, kindness and respect, providing a safe and secure learning environment. The dark green and light yellow upside down U shape represents the hills around Noongar Boodja (Noongar Country). The dark blue colour represents the waterways around Fremantle area from the Derbarl Yerrigan (Swan River) to the Wind(ocean). The light blue circles and lines represent waterholes. The lines with dots represent travel, the blue, yellow, orange, purple and white dots represent the colours of sunset of each positive day.
