NAIDOC Celebrations

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee

During NAIDOC Week students participated in a range of activities including Dreamtime Storytelling by Ashton Hanson and damper tasting, which was made by Emmaline Winmar and Elizabeth Wallam.
The Kindergarten created a paper mache Aboriginal flag and also made necklaces.
PP – Year 4 joined in a range of activities including necklace making, boomerang painting, biscuit making and hand dot painting.
Years 5 and 6 decorated a large dreamtime snake which was used for our NAIDOC assembly.
Years 7-10 had a cooking workshop that was run by Aboriginal Health from Narrogin about healthy eating, where they made damper scrolls and fried rice.

To end such an amazing week, we had Tony Hanson come into the school and do welcome to country and the Aboriginal students performed a traditional dance at an assembly, which they had been practising for 4 weeks prior to NAIDOC week. This was put together by Alistair Williams and Ross Storey.
