NAIDOC DAY 2015

16/07/2015
​At assembly on Wednesday 22 July 2015 we will be celebrating NAIDOC.  The Turwan Circle Organising Committee have arranged for a group of students from our school to participate in highlighting to fellow students what NAIDOC means.
 
The students will be performing a welcome dance followed by a drama play.
 
NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920′s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians.
 
NAIDOC Week is held in the first full week of July. It is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and our society.
 
We encourage all Australians to participate in the celebrations and activities that take place across the nation during NAIDOC Week.
