Special Story Time with Jasmine Seymour

Join us for a Special Story Time with Dharug author and illustrator Jasmine Seymour as she shares with us some of her beautiful picture books including “Open Your Heart to Country” and “Cooee Mittigar”.

3-10-year-olds and their families will enjoy stories, songs, dancing, and a craft activity. The Story Time session is free; bookings are not required.

Jasmine Seymour is a Dharug woman and descendant of Maria Lock, who was the daughter of Yarramundi, the Boorooberongal elder who had met Governor Phillip on the banks of the Hawkesbury River in 1791. Maria was the first Aboriginal woman to be educated by the Blacktown Native Institute. She was married to carpenter and convict, Robert Lock and their union resulted in thousands of descendants who can all trace their Darug heritage back past Yarramundi. Jasmine is a member of the Darug Custodian Aboriginal Corporation.

It is Jasmine’s wish that through her books, everyone will know that the Dharug mob are still here, still strong.
