NAIDOC Week celebrated

Holy Cross Catholic School, Kincumber, will celebrate NAIDOC week on Monday, July 14, with a cultural day.

Aboriginal people from the community will visit the school and facilitate cultural activities with the children such as boomerang painting, sand art, artefacts, boomerang throwing, Aboriginal dance and jewellery making. The day aims to highlight Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and traditions.

Gosford Showground will also play host to a NAIDOC Week Community Celebrations Day on Tuesday, July 8, which will include a barbecue lunch, service stalls, Koori entertainment and a Kikupa Touch Competition. This year, NAIDOC week is held from July 6 to 13, and it creates an opportunity to formally recognise the contributions that indigenous Australians have made and continue to make to the country and local society.
