New! Sacred Place, Sacred Time

For Acknowledgment of Country

Sacred Place, Sacred Time by Andrew Chinn, illustrated by Bernadette Chinn

A song for Acknowledgement of Country based on words compiled by Tina O'Keefe, then Assistant Principal at Marymount Catholic Primary School in QLD.

This acknowledgement is used quite widely in South East Queensland.

The song features a space, at the 24 second mark, for schools to acknowledge the local First Nations People of their local area.

Bernadette's artwork features Australian native flowers from every state and territory in the country. Thanks to Drew Lane for sound production.

Featuring the voices of:

Poppy and Ivy (St Finbarr's, Ashgrove, QLD)

Paula-May, Jovana, Sabine, Cheyenne, and Kay-Dee (Immaculate Heart of Mary, Leichhardt, QLD)

Abigail, Georgie, Olivia and Romy (Marymount, Burleigh Waters, QLD)

And thanks to the coordinating teachers: Catherine Connors, Kelli Broadbent and Melissa Quirk

Produced by Andrew Chinn
