NAIDOC Week celebrations are held across Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC is celebrated not only in Indigenous communities, but by Australians from all walks of life. This week was a great opportunity for all students and staff to participate in a range of activities planned by Mount Gravatt High Community Education Counsellor, Barbara Carson, to support NAIDOC Week.
The celebrations ran over three days with the main event being a Bush-tucker BBQ held each day. Students and staff were able to try traditional bush tucker including crocodile, emu and kangaroo sausages, damper, natural honey, jam, and chutney.
Celebrations also included a Didgeridoo player, who entertained the school during lunchtime, an artefact display and Indigenous games. 2021 NAIDOC Theme - Heal Country!
