Shoal Bay Public School celebrates NAIDOC

The students and staff of Shoal Bay Public School celebrated NAIDOC Week on Tuesday 18 July 2017.

The staff and students from Shoal Bay Public School celebrated Aboriginal culture by participating in a number of flawless activities held by the fabulous staff from Murrook Culture Centre for NAIDOC Week. We learnt traditional Aboriginal dance, how to throw boomerangs and how to make damper using bush tucker.

During the opening ceremony, the students that have been learning the Gathang language led the assembly and showcased what they have been learning. Chris from Murrook presented the Welcome to Country in Gathang language, followed by Steve, also from Murrook, who entertained us with displaying his deadly didgeridoo sounds.

The students thoroughly enjoyed meeting the staff from Murrook Culture Centre and celebrating the oldest living culture alive for NAIDOC Week.
