On Thursday 11th June Year 7 and the International Students participated in our own NAIDOC event. The activities commenced with an assembly in the hall where students learnt that NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. NAIDOC Week is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.
After the assembly the students rotated through five activity stations where they played traditional Aboriginal games, produced Aboriginal artworks and learnt about some of the dances and music, including having the chance to play the didgeridoo and clapping sticks. The celebrations culminated with a BBQ lunch complete with freshly baked damper and lemon myrtle ice cream. Thanks goes to Ms Blackburn and Mrs Fallah for co-ordinating this wonderful event
