MUURRBAY ABORIGINAL LANGUAGE AND CULTURE CO-OP LTD

Muurrbay (white fig tree in Gumbaynggirr) began in 1986, when Gumbaynggirr Elders got together to revive their language and hand it down.

Muurrbay aims to support Aboriginal people, particularly Gumbaynggirr, in the revival and maintenance of their language and culture, and so strengthen their sense of identity, self esteem and links to country.

Muurrbay is involved in the following Gumbaynggirr language classes:
night classes for families (adults and kids);
TAFE classes (adults and high school) and four primary schools and pre-schools.

There are also workshops for teachers of Gumbaynggirr language, to learn about:
grammar, lesson planning, developing a co-ordinated approach across schools, using the new Syllabus and sharing teaching resources.
