There are currently no songs for children to sing in Guugu Yimidhirr.

This project aims to address this lack by bringing together speakers, song writers and musicians to develop original songs for the children of Hope Vale community.

Anticipated outcomes

  • Increased engagement and language learning outcomes for children.
  • Vehicle for AL transmission for parents with limited AL skills.


the first six songs have been completed and are now being learned and sung by Lillian Bowen’s Guugu Yimidhirr language class at Hope Vale Primary School.
