NAIDOC Week

It’s been an amazing week of celebrating NAIDOC Week at West – a time where we celebrate the history and culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Our children have taken part in many cultural activities during the week, and we thank the following people for running these educational events:

·           Corey Payne and Elisha Mangal  - Rock Paintings

·           Christina & Kristy Brims & Jane Barnes – damper making

·           Billie Brims – traditional dance

·           Colleen Johnson – story telling

·           Willie Hannah – aboriginal artefacts

·           Clontarf Academy – sporting games

·           MDAS – BBQ lunch

We will hold a Special Assembly on Friday morning in the gym. All parents/carers are welcome and encouraged to attend.

As part of our celebrations, we will have a FREE BBQ lunch on Friday.  Students will need to bring their snack for recess, as usual, and the canteen will have the usual snacks and drinks for sale, but there will be NO LUNCH ORDERS on Friday.
