This morning we used our assembly to showcase the learning and reflection that has been taking place in our classroom, all about NAIDOC Week. We made accessories to wear with our costume, in the colours of the Australian Aboriginal flag. The black represents the Aboriginal people of Australia, the red represents the red earth and the yellow represents the sun; the giver of life and protector. We also used our handprints to create an eye-catching backdrop of the flag. After our performance, we felt happy and proud of the messages we had delivered to the school community.
Sam – We talked about how the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples were the first to be on Australian land.
Chloe – We were telling people how special NAIDOC Week is and what we celebrate.
Jett – We taught the school about the 2019 NAIDOC theme of, ‘Voice. Treaty. Truth”.
Aiden – During the assembly, we highlighted the respect that should always be shown for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
