Djilang Program
Education Programs

Years 5-10
Focus area: Aboriginal Cultural Connection

The Djilang program in 2019 saw a focus on connection to culture through language where young people on Wathaurong country through the Wathaurong Kids Club, the Stronger Brother Stronger Sister and Koorie Youth Club came together with Cats players to create art with a focus on Wadawurrung language. This program is free and available to Aboriginal children aged 5-16. The Djilang Round featured a formal Welcome to Country, pre-game performance by the Deadly Dancers, half time Auskick and grid games played by young Aboriginal children from across the Barwon South West region and the guard of honour made up by participants through the Djilang program.
