The Norse World
The Norse myths are the story material for the year, together with a strong emphasis
on local aboriginal culture and story. In these stories the separation of humanity
from the heavenly worlds resulting in the loneliness of the individual is expressed.
These stories are full of humour, courage and adventure against the forces of darkness
and evil and the children respond enthusiastically to such images.
