2014 – Lillian Bowen gets her own Guugu Yimidhirr classroom!

For many years Guugu Yimithirr teacher Lillian Bowen carried her books from classroom to classroom for Guugu Yimithirr lessons. Now the students come to her in the new Guugu Yimithirr  classroom – a beautiful space dedicated to Guugu Yimithirr language. The green sign on the wall reads: Leave English language outside. Speak only Guugu Yimithirr in here.

Lillian’s students tell her they wish they could have Guugu Yimithirr lessons every day.
