About the Design:
The children involved in the design of this moth used Aboriginal art techniques to create patterns and symbols using dots to create pictures of turtles, hands and rainbows.

The school decided to name the moth Benwerrin which is aboriginal for ‘long hill’.

About the Creative Team:
Children from Year 5 at Longhill Primary School worked with artist Claire West to create a moth based around Amy’s epic journey to Australia.
