NAIDOC Celebrations at La Salle

NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Here at La Salle College it was no different as staff and students participated in a range of activities and began the week with an assembly where special guests spoke and performed on Monday 23 July.  

The Wadumbah Dance group showcased the Bibullmun culture from the South West through music, dance and storytelling while Ms Sasha Greenoff addressed the College. Mr Des Headland and Mr David Pigram were also invited guests to the College Assembly. This year the NAIDOC theme was “Our Languages Matter”.

NAIDOC originally stood for ‘National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee’. This committee was once responsible for organising national activities during NAIDOC Week and its acronym has since become the name of the week itself.

Staff and students from Aboriginal Education cooked kangaroo stew, made damper and had kangaroo sausages sizzling on the barbeque for all to enjoy. Various activities were set up around the school for students to immerse themselves in Indigenous Culture.
