First Languages Australia

For the first time in Queensland’s history, Aboriginal language was sung in the Banco Court Foyer of the Supreme Court in Brisbane.

The Yugambeh Youth Choir invited by the Hellenic Australian Lawyers Association (HAL) to use their annual Christmas party as a fundraiser for uniform and tuition costs.

HAL's Justice Anthe Philippides and Mal Varitimos QC and their team worked to ensure that the wider Aboriginal community felt very welcome amongst a legal fraternity of more than 200 lawyers, judges and law students.

The choir, led by Choir Master Candace Kruger, performed songs including the Yugambeh tribute to the National Anthem 'Wandah Jageegan Jagun', Jingle Bells 'Tingoombai' and The Twelve Days of Christmas 'Dunngunn-dunbul Nyungai' in Yugambeh language.

The choir were also joined by William Barton and his mother Delmae.

Yugambeh Museum CEO Rory O'Connor said the organisation was extremely grateful for the support it has received from HAL.

"More than $5000 has been donated by HAL members and their supporters," he said.

"The money will make a big difference for our choir members. But just as importantly this event helps to demystify the court system and make our young people more empowered to take their future into their hands."
