Across Week 5, the Aboriginal Education Team – with the support of other staff members – organised and ran lunchtime activities to celebrate the history and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders for NAIDOC Week.
Students participated in creating canvas painted bookmarks, cooking lemon myrtle “melting moments” and quandong jam drops and a colouring-in competition. The winner of the colouring-in competition was Sasha Collett, who has claimed a $25 Clothing the Gap voucher. We were scheduled (and re-scheduled) to learn about and make bush medicine with Nanna Mary, but hot weather and COVID-19 got in the way.
The students who participated had a great time and look forward to more activities where they can learn about Indigenous culture and history.
