Local residents, students and staff have come together for Summer Hill Public School's NAIDOC Week, celebrating the cultures and achievements of First Nations Australians.
Thank you so much to the Nyumbar Aboriginal Educational group for coming into the school to celebrate with and educate our local students in this important week.
To begin the week's festivities, kindergarten through to year six students received the opportunity to watch the group perform a Sweeping Ceremony. The students enjoyed the paint up that was hosted that afternoon. And in particular, the Nyumbar Ngahri Dance incursion was a great chance for students to participate in fun and interactive education sessions, learning cultural dances and songs.
At the school's NAIDOC Week assembly, this year's Busking for Change charity event was also launched with a performance by Australian singer-songwriter, Josh Pyke and actress, Justine Clarke. The proceeds of the event will go towards the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, which engages with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander remote communities to provide educational resources.
Thank you and congratulations to everyone who hosted and participated in Summer Hill Public School's NAIDOC Week 2022 activities.
