Crest Hill students learn about the Australian Outback in their own backyard.

Crest Hill Elementary welcomed Aussie performing artist Paul Taylor who spent the week with students engaging them in workshops related to Australian culture.


As part of the NCSD Discover program, students were able to engage in educational enrichment by participating in story, song, didjeridoo, dance and painting workshops. 


Each grade at Crest Hill signified their uniqueness and solidarity as a class with a specific name and project. Students then performed together in an all-school presentation for parents and the community at the end of the week.


4th Grade students at Crest Hill prepared “koo-ey”, an Australian blessing song. Student Tre’ Sell said he was “excited to learn about the Outback and share with his family how to make a kangaroo.”

5th Grade students worked with Paul Taylor to create didgeridoos. Made out of PVC pipe, the students were able to express their individual creativity by decorating their didgeridoos with images from the Platte River.
