NAIDOC Week at Coolbinia Primary is a rich learning experience for our children! First there were Indigenous Games in Physical Education lessons, followed by the NAIDOC Week stall and activities each day, then on Friday our NAIDOC assembly and annual Artopia celebration.
The 2018 NAIDOC theme is “Because of her, we can!” Thus we have invited Aboriginal artists and educators who have worked with and contributed to the education of our children, to this special event. Other school leaders and members from our community partnerships, like the One World Centre, the United Nations Association of Australia (WA) and the Australian Association for Environmental Education (WA), will also be in attendance.
Funding for this special week of activities comes from our PALS (Aboriginal Affairs) and NAIDOC week grants, the River Rangers grant and the Cross Curriculum Priorities budget.
