SPE­CIAL

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.
