We'll never move forward unless we share what we've got: Greg Simms

Uncle Greg Simms grew up at La Perouse and was taught many things by the old people. In the 1950’s and 1960’s when they began to pass away he found he had to make his own way forward, using the values they taught him. Chief among these has been his awareness that the knowledge and stories that were shared with him need to be taught to younger generations and to Australians in general.
