NAIDOC WEEK

La Salle College began its celebration of NAIDOC week on Monday. The theme this year is Voice, Treaty, Truth. Let’s work together for a shared future. 


“This week is an opportunity to come together and learn more about Indigenous culture. The Indigenous staff and students have connections to 19 different Language groups across Australia and the Torres Strait Islands. It’s important to know that we may all be Indigenous but we have our own distinct cultural protocols, beliefs and traditions. We all value family, culture and land. We hope that this week you learn a little more about the world’s oldest living culture.” Ms Kym Oakley, Aboriginal Education Coordinator.


Today’s celebrations commenced with a staff smoking ceremony, then morning tea created by Les Oakley from Two Deadly food and fitness and Ms Kym Oakley.


“The Boarding students have been working hard with Les, Kristy Meyers and Shari Outram and her team. This event gives the Boarding students an opportunity to build their self-esteem and confidence and to show the staff how proud they are of their culture. The students served the food and answered questions related to this.” Ms Kim Oakley, Aboriginal Education Coordinator.
