A reader's theatre based on a true love story that happened between an English convict with an aristocrat background and an Australian indigenous girl in the 1800s. This was in a time when Australia, in particularly New South Wales was being settled by the white Europeans. There was a conflict of interest between the settlers and the peoples who had lived in the land for a very long time. This makes this story even more incredible.
This would be a perfect activity to supplement studies of other cultures, history or indigenous perspectives particularly for the Australian curriculum.
What is more special to me about this story that it took place just down the road, along the river where I was teaching last year. Our school was situated under the conical mountain which is mentioned in the script.
