IN OUR SCHOOLS
NAIDOC celebrations are underway at Currajong State School today. All students will spend the day celebrating the Aboriginal and Torres Strait cultures by taking part in a range of educational activities to learn more about indigenous art, food, language, drumming and the flags that represent their cultures.
The upper and lower schools will rotate through the activities in the school hall throughout the day. The whole school will also unite in the hall for a student- lead celebration where children will perform dances and presentations that they have been taught.
Currajong State School has been lucky to have a number of traditional owners, elders and up- and- coming indigenous educators join them to organise, coach, guide and teach the students numerous elements of the culture so that it can be passed on to the next generation of future leaders.
