This year NAIDOC Week celebrations will be held from Monday 8 to Sunday 15 November and provides the School community with the opportunity to celebrate the rich history, diverse cultures and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the oldest continuing cultures on the planet.
The Student Reconciliation Committee has been busy developing activities and initiatives based around this year’s theme, Always Was, Always Will Be, starting with a visit by Uncle John to the Early Learning Centre on Monday morning. Activities developed by the committee have been designed to create conversations and knowledge amongst our community. Students completing all activities will receive a prize at the end of the week.
This year’s theme, Always Was, Always Will Be recognises that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this continent for over 65,000 years.
NAIDOC 2020 invites all Australians to embrace the history of this country, a history which dates back thousands of generations. More information about NAIDOC Week and activities can be found here.
St Peter’s College stands on Kaurna country. We acknowledge and pay our respects to the Kaurna people, the traditional custodians whose ancestral lands we gather on. We acknowledge the deep feelings of attachment and relationship of the Kaurna people to country and we respect and value their past, present and ongoing connection to the land and cultural beliefs.
