NAIDOC Celebrations

Today we participated in a variety of fun activities to celebrate NAIDOC Day. NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee and is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society. We were joined by the Millabah dance troupe from the Hunter School of Performing Arts, who performed some traditional and contemporary dances and then worked with our students during a range of fun activities. Our activities included face painting, boomerang art, traditional games and dance. Well done to everyone for their active involvement and thank you to Ms Chapman for organising this great day.
