NAIDOC Week holds a special place for South Grafton

Last week South Grafton Public School celebrated NAIDOC Week. This year’s theme was ‘Voice. Treaty. Truth, Let’s work Together for a Shared Future’ and it saw our whole school come together.

We held two special assemblies where our special guest Mr Brett Tibbett spoke to our students, our Academy Choir sung Amazing Grace in Gumbarrygir, two Aboriginal dance groups performed and our NAIDOC public speaking students read out their speeches. Kayden Skinner also played the didgeridoo at the infant’s assembly. Our staff looked amazing wearing their 2019 NAIDOC shirts (pictured), our students participated in NAIDOC games and classroom activities. We had students participate in the NAIDOC public speaking competition and our Aboriginal dance group travelled to Iluka worksite to perform but unfortunately the weather wasn’t kind. It was a great week at South Grafton Public School.
