NAIDOC focus at school celebrations
STUDENTS at Mareeba State High School were treated to displays of traditional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and heritage last week as they hosted a special NAIDOC day event.
The day’s celebrations were kicked off by the school’s dreamtime dancers followed by a presentation and speech from West Yalanji Aboriginal Corporation rangers.
The students were then able to choose from a selection of activities and information stalls on the oval including Aboriginal artefacts, the stolen generation, moiety (kinship) in Aboriginal culture and more.
