Toolooa State High School NAIDOC Celebration
 
Songlines: The living narrative of our nation
 
For Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, the Dreamtime describes a time when the earth, people and animals were created by our ancestral spiritual beings. They cdreated the rivers, lakes, plants, land formations and living creatures. Dreaming tracks crisscross Australia and trace the journeys of our ancestral spirits as they created the land, animals and Lores, These dreaming tracks are sometimes called 'Songlines' as they record the travels of these ancestral spirits who 'sung' the land into life. These Songlines are recorded in traditional songs, stories, dance and art. They carry significant spiritual and cultural connection to knowledge, customs, ceremony and Lore of many Aboriginal nations and Torres Strait Islander language groups.
 
Toolooa State High School are excited to announce that on Wednesday the 27th of July we will be celebrating NAIDOC.
 
We have a range of cultural activities and entertainment, which will be followed by a Kup Murri (traditional underground cooking), prepared by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from Toolooa State High School.
 
All indigenous Toolooa students are invited to attend the celebration which will run from 11:00am - 2:00pm and students will be allowed to bring a quest to the festivities.
