National Talkblack 200121

We had:

Wesley Hull, Gordonvale State School HPE Teacher, AFL Schools Ambassador, AFL Multicultural Community Ambassador, Footys4all Education Ambassador talking about how last year he wrote a song which was later performed by 11-12 year old Gordonvale State School Students reaching the semi-final stage in the American-based song writing contest ‘RootsTech Song Contest’. The song Saddy Cat is about a sad cat, but deliberately a metaphor for asking ‘are you OK?” by having the lyric asking the subject why it is sad. It is very much about connecting with someone who seems down and showing enough interest in them to care. Vote for the song here: https://rootstechsongcontest.org/saddy-cat/ – Voting closes midnight Friday 22nd Jan
