What a parade!

16/10/2015
​Michael told us how a didgeridoo is made.

​NAIDOC Week celebrations are normally held each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life.

NAIDOC originally stood for ‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself.
 
The theme this year was We all Stand on Sacred Ground: Learn, Respect and Celebrate. It highlights Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ strong spiritual and cultural connection to land and sea.
 
On parade this week Mr Domic spoke to the students about sacred ground and sacred sites. He also introduced us to Michael, who spoke to the students about the importance of music to Aboriginal people. Michael then informed the students about didgeridoos; how they are created and how they are played.

 
 
 
 
Following the NAIDOC celebration our Netball students proudly displayed their new uniforms. Perhaps the new streamlined dresses, shirts and hats will help them run even faster!! Thanks to Mrs Desic for organising the terrific uniforms.
