Going Bush by Nadia Wheatley
We should have harmony among people who live on this beautiful planet. We should make friends with people we don't know. We should play, share and have trust with everyone. - Mohammed
On this journey I experienced the bush and I experienced life. I also found a brand-new way to learn, and know new things. - Christine
We worked together, made friends, and played together. I learned about ngurra, trees and plants, animals and Aboriginal people. - Alban
In 2005 author Nadia Wheatley and artist Ken Searle developed a Harmony Project with sixteen students from eight infant and primary schools in Sydney - some Muslim, some Catholic, some government schools. As well as experiencing the harmony of the natural environment, the children were encouraged to learn about harmony between the traditional owners and the land, and to find harmony in friendship and collaboration. Going Bush showcases some of the students' illustration and writing, linked together with art and design by Ken Searle and a narrative by Nadia Wheatley.
