Some of these students hail from the smallest and most isolated communities in the country.
But, with their works now adorning the walls of Wagga's art gallery, they are now contemporaries of some of Australia's most renowned Aboriginal artists.
Numbering 159 in total and mostly coming from years three, four and five, they came from Temora, Caragabal, Brungle, Gundagai, Yass, Narrandera and Yerong Creek public schools.
Travelling the farthest distance was Caragabal, whose students, teachers and some parents made the 350km round trip to be in Wagga for the official exhibition open on Friday afternoon.
Made using mostly found materials, their three-part artwork presented the unique experience of a life lived remotely.
"It's all about the place that means home," said 11-year-old Jimmy Death.
"We used sticks from around our school because we have a forest behind it," said Gabby Kelly, also aged 11.
Joining the sticks of various length and width, the students weaved twine in colourful patterns to further express their daily lives.
"The colours mean something about our school and our homes, so we have an Aboriginal flag coloured one to show that we have Aboriginal people who have always lived there," said 10-year-old Eve Napier.
"Mine is the colour of the sunset, because I go out every day to watch it. Sometimes it's red, other times it's more yellow, but it looks so different," Gabby said.
With their 20 teachers, they collaborated with 11 Wiradjuri elders, and six artists from the Wagga Gallery, Gallery of NSW and Department of Education arts unit, in creating their works.
Spearheaded by Wagga Art Gallery, the Dhaganha: Come Here To Visit exhibition combines Indigenous language and cultural studies in exploring primary school representations of life.
"Some of them travelled four-and-half hours to get to the gallery for workshops," said Wagga Gallery's curator and director of learning, Linda Elliott.
"A few were Indigenous, but mostly not. It's about learning the local history and understanding the Indigenous perspective in their own worlds.
Throughout the term, students took a virtual excursion to the Art Gallery of NSW to learn hands-on practices from contemporary Indigenous artist Reko Rennie.
The flavour of his practice is sewn like a thread through the works on the
Forming the fifth iteration of the Home: Aboriginal Art from NSW program, the students also studied the works of Aboriginal artists Badger Bates, Lorraine Connelly-Northey, Roy Kennedy and Hu Wedge.
The whisper each artists' style is evident in the exhibition, but none more profoundly than the latter listed.
"It's not about imitation, it's about inspiration," Ms Elliott said.
"We worked a lot on print making in the style of Hu Wedge, which was helped by the fact that the gallery owns a few of artworks," Ms Elliott said.
With the official opening taking place on Friday, the exhibition will be on display at the gallery until November 10.
