Kaurna Plains School was the other big winner at the event, taking out the Best Video prize in the secondary school category. Their movie 'Warraburna Kaurna’ pays tribute to the Aboriginal Kaurna language, which nearly became extinct.

"[The film] is about how the the Kaurna language slept," explained school student Khyanah. "Some of my family don't know what culture they're from. We only speak a little bit of the language. ...We need to improve more."

The film contained original music performed by students and some very evocative imagery; including a traditional Aboriginal dance set to bagpipes.

Kaurna Plains School also took home a National Spotlight Award for Videography.
