Inaugural NAIDOC Day Celebration

We held a NAIDOC Week assembly which the student leaders ran to teach students about the theme Voice, Treaty, Truth: Let’s Work Together for a Shared Future. Students dressed up in red, yellow or black to represent the colours of the Aboriginal flag. We wanted to give students the opportunity to understand the role of art and dance as a means of story-telling in Aboriginal culture and they all participated in a range of art activities. One of the highlights was a visit from a local group called Wadumbah. They performed for us and even had the whole school up and joining in for one of the dances. We had a great Q&A session where the students asked some very insightful questions of the Wadumbah group members. We learnt lots of things that we could not simply have learnt from a book and especially enjoyed hearing James’ skill on the didgeridoo. During lunch it was great to see so many of our adventurous students having a try of some bush tucker. A great way to finish Term 2!
