NAIDOC 2019

NAIDOC 2019
 
 
Friday 9th August we celebrate NAIDOC with the biggest feed and yarns.
 
Our senior boys arrived to school at 5.30am to put down a kup mari (traditional underground oven) with over 46kg of meat and 37kg of vegies. Our senior girls started at 7.00am and made up vermicelli, curries and dampers to help cater for over 300 people.
 
Principal Justin Harrison and Community Education Counsellor Ambrose Coolwell welcomed students and their guests and encouraged all to participate in many activities that were provided by Rainbow Valley Early Learning, AIME, Headspace and Roseberry Queensland, Toolooa’s Indigenous cohort and Early Learning classes These activities included face and bark painting, storytelling bracelet making, a large collaborative collage, dance and touch footy. We are very pleased to continue our relationship with Rainbow Valley building positive relationships between our students and the littles ones. It was fantastic to have our main feeder school Kin Kora Primary along for the day creating friendships which will assist with their transition to high school next year.
 
In particular we would like thank our past students Ainsley, Djinda, Kourtney, Juwan, Jacob and Eli for returning and passing on their knowledge to current students. Ms MJ and the AIME ladies were also a tremendous help in the kitchen. Thank you to everyone who attended, we are looking forward to 2020!
