Kalkadoon (Mt Isa Aboriginal language)

Robert speaks in English and Kalkadoon (Mt Isa Aboriginal language)

Robert ensures his children learn about literacy and numeracy in both English and their Aboriginal language. Robert believes that children will learn by copying their parent's behaviour. Robert uses games like 'I spy' when in the car and doing mathematical problems 'out loud' while at home to help his children develop their literacy and numeracy skills.
