Girls Dormitory at Barambah Aboriginal Settlement 1911
Cooking and other activities are done outside under the bough shelter. The older girls cook and prepare the meals. They clean the dormitory, mend clothes, collect firewood and fetch water from the creek.
“… going to the creek each day and putting the water in two kerosene tins. They were attached to a long stick which we put on our shoulders to carry”
- Ettie Meredith later recalls in 25 October 1982
