One week each year that specifically focusses on learning activities and performances to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
This week is usually a culmination of a whole school parade, activities and lessons that occur both in the classroom and Cultural HUB.
In 2020, all classes explored the history of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags, as well as the specific protocols surrounding a Welcome to Country and Acknowledgement of Country. Each class finished the experience with co-constructing their own Acknowledgement of Country to be displayed and used daily.
In the Cultural Hub, localised knowledge of Country and Land were explored, in keeping in alignment with the theme, 'Always was, Always will be'. Aunty Robyn Williams walked us through the history of her ancestors, Bilin Bilin, and other Traditional Custodians. Providing this cultural learning space for all to access, builds cultural awareness for staff, students and the wider community.
