Caterpillars Celebrating Naidoc Week

Caterpillars Celebrating Naidoc Week

NAIDOC Week is a national event which celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It is a celebration that encourages the community to come together and participate in the many different events and cultural activities put on by communities, workplaces and schools.

Today our children showed their respect for aboriginal art by making some aboriginal craft items. They enjoyed colouring the aboriginal flag, making boomerangs and making didgeridoos. They also took part in dot painting on pictures of snakes representing the rich aboriginal culture .The children helped the educators display the completed tasks on the wall outside the caterpillars’ room.  Our children participated in the entire process enthusiastically.
