About the work
Humanity’s desire for fish has meant the species are declining faster than they can replenish. Fishing and proper management of our seas has, and should be, maintained by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island communities as it is central to their culture and custom. This work represents this need for indigenous communities to gain control over their rightful traditions.
St Patrick's is a diverse school community with a multitude of culture and language from North Queensland, Torres Strait and beyond.
* The caliber of work presented at Strand Ephemera 2019 was at such high standard that the judges wished to name a Highly Commended, along with the major award winner.
