The children, educators and families will be celebrating Naidoc week. Every day, we endeavour to respectfully embed indigenous perspectives into our program by joining together for a daily acknowledgment of country, participating in yarning circles and having stories, music and visual images that represent indigenous perspectives. During the lead up to Naidoc week, we have invited Aunty Di, a local indigenous lady to visit us and share stories of her cultural heritage. We will also do songs, dancing and art work to celebrate.
