Quairading Stories


In 2013, Community Arts Network partnered with Quairading District High School (QDHS) and artist in residence Steven Aiton to develop a series of short animated films that portray Noongar dreamtime stories and experiences of students throughout QDHS’s centenary year.

This short film tells the story of Noongar Elder John Kickett, who campaigned to have his children attend the local school in the early 1900s. The animation reveals how his efforts marked the beginning of the end of segregated education in Western Australia.
