Inspiring teacher (Mitchell Beames) at Brewarrina Central School explored his own unique way of teaching using Aboriginal Pedagogy processes. As a result of this, HIS WAY OF DOING made an impact on students LEARNING in the classroom. During the training day with Melissa Kirby, beginning teachers explored Dr Ernie Grants Six elements through Processes, Protocols, Systems and Values as well as Dr Tyson Yunkaporta's 8 Ways of learning . Melissa then allowed teachers time for teachers to reflect on their very own Authentic WAY of teaching quality lessons to students. Building on this knowledge, all teachers went away to create their own teaching methods reflecting on various Aboriginal Knowledge Processes. Teachers presented this knowledge in front of Elders in the Brewarrina community. Mitchell impressed Melissa with his Presentation- Elders were talking up his presentation in the community the next day.

This same exercise was a success at Bourke High School.
