School Season // Term 1

Blueback – Adapted by Peta Murray from the book by Tim Winton

Blueback is an evocative story set along the Western Australian coastline. It captures the mystery of the sea and the majesty of an old fish called “Blueback”, and the moment when an inquisitive boy becomes a man of conviction, prepared to stand up for what he loves and believes in.

One of Tim Winton’s most personal and quintessentially Western Australian stories, Blueback depicts the life of a young boy, Abel, and his mother, their relationship with the environment and their desire to protect and preserve the natural habitat of the place they call home.

Blueback is not only a comprehensive feast of general capability skills, it spans numerous learning areas including seasons, cycles of life, sustainability, ethical understanding, personal and social capability are all very present.
