April Cunningham – QLD
April is a proud descendant from the Noonuccal people of the Quandamooka nation from North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) who was born in Brisbane.
April is a very keen and passionate cultural educator in sharing and educating the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures with others. She believes in keeping the spirit alive of these two rich cultures; we need to educate the children of today, parents, families, educators and other fellow Australians. April intends to connect, share her knowledge, deep respect and passion with you, so you too can feel, understand, respect and embed the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives into your services. Her vision is for justice and equality in humanity.
April has been fortunate enough to be working for Sue Inglis for a number of years at Pelican Waters Golden Beach Kindergarten embedding cultural perspectives after she embarked travelling globally with an Indigenous performing company teaching children about these two rich cultures through song and dance. April has recently been embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives and reaching out to services across South-East QLD on Action Research Project focused on “Standing up for a Natural Childhood”.
