NAIDOC WEEK 2012

  

VICNENTIA HIGH SCHOOL CELEBRATED NAIDOC WEEK  23rd - 27th July 2012

 

The week began with a formal  assembly on Tuesday.

The assembly this year was organised and run by the students of the NAIDOC committee and was outstanding. It was awesome to see our students run the assembly with pride and professionalism and the many community members who attended commented on the performance of our kids. The theme this year was Tent Embassy – 40 years on, the Year 12 aboriginal studies class gave a history of the tent embassy and its significance to Aboriginal people which was followed by a speech by Wanika Seymour and Tanika Lonesborough Brown on the impact of the tent embassy at a local level.  Our dancers once again performed and awed the school and guests. Year 8 Student Shakeela Williams blew everyone away with her singing abilities performing a Maroon 5 song during the assembly.  The annual NAIDOC achievement awards concluded the assembly and once again showcased our students' talents and skills in art, sport, community service and academics. The flag was raised this year by Aunty Iris McLeod and her grandson Dane Sturgeon. Many thanks to the parents and community members who attended the assembly and lunch that followed.

Wednesday was activity day in the hall.

Our indigenous students were asked to invite a non-indigenous friend  to participate in activities such as Beading, Painting, Jewellery making and Damper cooking. The day was a lot of fun and both indigenous and non-indigenous students had a great time.

The inaugural staff VS students NAIDOC touch football game was held on Thursday lunch time. Unfortunately the staff team took out the honours this year. The week was completed with our annual NAIDOC breakfast on Friday morning which saw our students selling egg n bacon rolls and rounded up  a week of fun and celebrations.
