NAIDOC Week is a celebration of the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Every year NAIDOC Week celebrations are centred on a theme.
This year’s theme is Get Up, Stand Up, Show Up.
Getting Up, Standing Up, and Showing Up can take many forms.
Whether it’s seeking proper environmental, cultural and heritage protections, Constitutional change, a comprehensive process of truth-telling, working towards treaties, or calling out racism—we must do it together.
Today, St Dominic’s College celebrated the commencement of NAIDOC Week with a traditional Smoking Ceremony, followed by a beautiful performance by Nulungu Dreaming and our Indigenous Dance Group.
Year 7 were fortunate to participate in our annual Indigenous Cultural incursion, learning about Indigenous culture, crafts and much more.
St Dominic’s College thanks Mr James Bourke, Indigenous Education Officer and our good friend Jesse from Nulungu Dreaming who coordinated our NAIDOC Week celebrations.
