NAIDOC ( National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander day of celebration) takes place in the first week of July across the country to honour the culture of our Aboriginal brothers and sisters. Because this happens during the Winter break at school we held a wonderful celebration day on Thursday June 26. It’s a great annual event at our school where the students are given the opportunity to engage in activities with an Aboriginal perspective. They dress in the Aboriginal colours of red black and yellow and are very proud to engage in the events of the day.
The day finishes with a great Aussie sausage sizzle with many parents and family members joining us. This year we fed about 500 adults and children and had a very enjoyable community day. The weather was great, even though we are in the middle of Winter! The smell of the sausages added to the wonderful atmosphere! The culture of the indigenous people of Australia is worth celebrating and I was proud to be a part of it.
