Bulahdelah Central School Year 12 student Leah Slockee recently performed at the All-Stars Rugby League competition held at McDonald Jones Stadium in Newcastle.
Leah was part of the Bloodline Sistas Koori Dance Group who presented traditional songs and dances to welcome the All Stars teams onto the field.
In preparation for the event, Leah attended many rehearsals in Newcastle to learn the dances.
This was her first performance with the dance group which she thoroughly enjoyed.
Performing in front of a packed stadium with her friends, sharing her culture and watching the rugby matches were some of the many highlights of the experience.
Leah was inspired by the Indigenous All Star players, particularly Greg Inglis and Johnathan Thurston.
