YEAR 6 NAIDOC WEEK GALA DAY
On the 2nd of November 2016, Year 6 went to Westend Oval to celebrate NAIDOC Week. NAIDOC Week is about the Aboriginal people and their connection to the land. We are currently on Wiradjuri country and some of the Wiradjuri people came to Westend Oval to talk to us. Children from St. Patrick's, Griffith East, Griffith North, Griffith Public, Hanwood Public and Yenda Public all attended the NAIDOC Week celebration. At the aboriginal activities we learnt about their language, style of dance, looked at some artefacts, played some games and painted the aboriginal flag with our handprints. The flag that we painted was given to our school and is now hanging up in the hall. Overall we really enjoyed the gala day and it was definitely an event that we will remember. It was a great privilege that our school took part in this fantastic event and we would like to thank Mr. Ross and our Year 6 teachers for making it possible for us all to attend this very special and fun day.
