Representatives from NSW State Emergency Service celebrated NAIDOC Week on July 4 at the NSW SES City of Sydney Unit.
Bourke Street Public School and Poets Corner Preschool shared news and photos of their activities.
A school-wide assembly featured songs sung in Aboriginal language in order to celebrate this year’s theme – Our Languages Matter.
To celebrate NAIDOC week, the students at the National Indigenous Culinary Institute (NICI) received a helping hand from British India Trading Co. Head Chef, Matt Taylor.
REDFERN: “We’re lucky that every week at the NCIE feels like NAIDOC Week!” said April Long, Programs Manager at the NCIE (National Centre of Indigenous Excellence). Ms Long was especially excited about hosting the 2014 Inner-City NAIDOC Family & Sports Day on Friday July 11.
NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) Week is held in the first full week of July. It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures in all their rich diversity and an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians – individuals and organisations – make to our country and society.
With the Winter Solstice heralding the halfway mark for winter behind us, it’s time to look forward to what’s in store for the rest of the colder months.
First off for July are the winter School Holidays from July 1-12. Trawling around various websites there seems to be plenty for children to do in that time.
Regular readers will know that Sydney-based singer-songwriter and composer, Marcus Corowa, was the special guest performer at the SSH Harbour Cruise and Picnic on May 18. Corowa’s soulful set was the perfect complement to a warm, breezy day on the water.
